Train Engine Fire Near Township Building Controlled by MVFD Sunday

MT. VERNON – Jefferson County Fire Protection firefighters brought a train engine on fire under control Sunday near the Mount Vernon Township building.

Around 5:15 p.m. Sunday, firefighters from Jefferson County Fire Protection District and Mt. Vernon Fire Department (MVFD) responded to the train fire on the tracks near Pump House Ln. and George St.

Accessing the train engine was made difficult due to the landscape surrounding railroad tracks, so MVFD was requested to respond with an engine and extra hoses.

No injuries were reported.
