Wednesday, September 10, 2014
Alexis from CSX Railroad called the WPD in reference to a train blocking the Front Street entrance to Whiting Park. She advised that the engine was on fire. WFD was detailed to the Front Street entrance and could not locate any problems. Sgt. Greer located the engine Northwest of 117th Street. All train traffic stopped at that time and WFD extinguished an electrical fire on the engine.
