Video: 300-yard wooden railroad bridge in Central Texas collapses after catching fire
Dramatic footage has emerged of a 300-yard wooden railroad bridge in Central Texas collapsing after catching fire.
The bridge, across the Colorado River between San Saba and Lometa, burnt down and collaped after firefighters spent 15 hours attempting to put out the blaze before deciding to let it burn down.
The Lometa Volunteer Fire Department Capt. Jamie Smart, who shot the video, said that nobody was hurt in the blaze in rural Lampasas County.
Mr Smart said he heard someone shouting "there she goes" and he shot the video.
Authorities are still trying to establish what caused the bridge, which was built in 1910, to catch fire.
