DENVER (KDVR) — Thursday morning, a train stopped on the tracks in Commerce City where firefighters put out a fire in a locomotive.
The South Adams County Fire Department responded to a call of a train stopped on the tracks near the intersection of Highway 2 and 104th Avenue near Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.
SkyFOX was on the scene where footage showed the train smoking from the front car at 7:20 a.m.
What originally appeared to be just smoke turned into a fire in the first car by 7:35 a.m. According to BNSF, which owns the train, it was carrying grain.
As of 7:50 a.m., the smoke and fire appeared to be put out.
Authorities say no one was injured. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
