Lostant Fire Department

A train car caught fire east of Lostant.

Lostant, Leonore, and Reading firefighters were all asked to rush to a train near East 12th Road.  Initially it was thought the fire involved a rail car hauling ethanol.  However when firefighters arrived on scene just after 6:30 Wednesday evening, they realized railroad ties were actually on fire inside the rail car.  The car was detached from the train’s engine.

There were no reports of any injuries.
