PARIS, June 29, 2007 (AFP) - Rail traffic between the French capital and its main Charles de Gaulle Roissy airport was disrupted Friday after a fire that engulfed two dozen campers in a Roma camp outside the city damaged two bridges, the SNCF railway operator said.

SNCF said traffic on the RER B line, which also serves many northern suburbs, had resumed at dawn Friday but that it expected one in three trains to operate.

No one was injured in the fire near the Stade de France sports stadium to the north of Paris that forced the closure of the rail line, and which firefighters managed to put out within 90 minutes.

Charles de Gaulle Roissy airport is also served by buses operated by the city of Paris, as well as coaches operated by Air France.
