Train briefly catches fire in McComb

A train caught fire and stopped in the middle of McComb around 3 p.m. today.

Nobody was hurt and train workers put the fire out themselves, said McComb Fire Chief Mike Voland.

“We just saw black smoke but the train stopping in the middle of town made it hard to get anywhere,” Voland said.

A second train stopped near a crossing where firefighters were called to and firefighters asked the train’s conductor to be weary of anything out of the ordinary.
