DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WIVB) - A Norfolk Southern train is stuck on the tracks after its turbo engine caught fire, sending flames shooting high into the air.
The East Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department was called to Progress Drive in Dunkirk to extinguish the blaze. Firefighters say the fire was caused by burning oil, and they were able to cut off its fuel source, allowing the fire to go out on its own.

The train is stuck on the tracks until a backup train can come through and charge the stalled train's batteries. The stalled train has a second, battery-powered engine, and once charged it will be moved.
The tracks will be shut down for a few hours. The train was hauling new vehicles.
No one was injured in this incident.
