The London Fire Brigade (LFB) says a crew is on the scene “investigating reports of smoke.”
Smoke was also reported on the Victoria Line.
A passenger said on social media: “Just got evacuated from Oxford Circus as there was a train on fire on, I think, the Bakerloo line, so best to avoid the Bakerloo line.”
Photos posted by Twitter users show passengers covering their faces as the train carriage fills with smoke.
One called the situation “terrifying.”
Witnesses also reported the smell of burning plastic.
