Union Berlin offered the supporters lodging in the VIP section of Stadion An der Alten Försterei after the fire.

From DW.com:

One of the train cars was completely engulfed in flames and the rest of the train was evacuated, along with two local trains that pulled into the station as the fire broke out.

The video from DW is shocking, and it’s incredible that no one was seriously injured

Union won the match 2-0.
