FLORENCE, NJ -
An NJ Transit Train caught fire Sunday evening and is currenlty at the Florence Riverline Station. According to a fire official on the scene, the bulk of the fire is out, and crews are attempting to get to the engine compartment.
It's reported that all passengers are now out of the train, and are being kept warm in fire trucks, and ambulances. A NJ Transit bus has been called to the scene to allow to the people to continue on their way.
The tracks have been "secured", meaning all trains have been stopped both ways, and passengers can be moved across the tracks to the other side if need be.
