Fire at CSX rail yard in S. Cumminsville


Fire crews battled a fire at the CSX rail yard in South Cumminsville on Wednesday morning.

Investigators say a small building caught fire in the 3600 block of Garringer Avenue.

Upon arrival, companies found a fire in a metal shipping container that housed a boiler that is used to head product for removal from tank cars and an air compressor that is used to pressurize rail cars for product removal. Firefighters were able to protect a 500 gallon diesel fuel tank and a 125 pound propane tank while quickly bringing the fire under control.

Damage is estimated at $250,000. The case is undetermined at this time.
