UPDATE: Added morning photos at bottom. The bridge is still burning, but fire fighting efforts appear to have stopped as the reachable sections have been put out. The bridge will be unusable until repaired.
A fire broke out on substantial sections of the railroad bridge in Parker, AZ on Saturday night. Many agencies were still responding at midnight as this article was being published.
Long sections of the bridge were aflame, with fire raining into the river and onto dry brush on the riverside, where small brush fires were breaking out. Fire fighters were rushing to refill tenders and cycle back to the bridge, but the damage seemed likely to be substantial.
