Brush Fires Caused by Trains

On Sunday night firefighters from Congers and Stony Point responded to the CSX Railroad in Haverstraw after reports of small fires came in. Around 7:00 PM crews began battling several small brush fires that had been sparked by a passing freight train along the rails from West Haverstraw to the Haverstraw Tunnel. Volunteers from both departments worked for about an hour to put out the fires, which were mostly in the brush, though a supply shed on Leonard Street was also in flames.
