Early Morning Fire On CP-Rail Bridge Near Chillicothe

Chillicothe Fire Fighters responded to the scene of a fire at the Canadian Pacific railroad bridge that crosses the Grand River south of Chillicothe.   The call came in about 6:35 Monday morning.

Captain Less Hinnen says the fire appears to have started in the brush that built up under the bridge during the flooding.  That had spread to a couple of railroad ties.  The fire department has the fire on the rail ties out and are working on the rest of the fire.

The State Fire Marshall is investigating.
