International operators TGV, Thalys and Eurostar reported their trains were impacted by the issue, with Eurostar saying that it expected its services to resume shortly after around 15:30.
The cause of the disruption appears to be a short circuit which sparked a fire in the overhead lines, according to reports in RTBF.
