DULUTH, Ga. (AP) — Gwinnett County fire officials say seven children on a daycare field trip have been treated for burns they suffered during a visit to a railway museum.

Gwinnett County emergency services spokesman Tommy Rutledge said in a statement that the children were on a full-size train ride in Duluth on Tuesday when hot embers blew from the train's stack and landed on the group.

Rutledge says the children, who were between 4 and 11 years old, suffered minor quarter and dime-sized burns. He says some children were burned multiple times.

Rutledge says the children didn't need to be hospitalized and the daycare has been in contact with parents.
