VERDIGRIS -- Motorists saw more smoke than normal coming from the engine of a BNSF Railway train passing through the Catoosa area Tuesday. So, they called authorities.
It was a good thing they did.
The train, en route to Joplin, Mo., and on to other destinations, had a fire in the blower motor in the engine compartment.
The Claremore Progress reports that the Catoosa Fire Department was called shortly before 7 a.m.
BNSF officials and firefighters determined it would be better to stop the train in Verdigris to handle the fire.
