A Bellevue fire engulfed power lines and at least 10 train cars Saturday evening. 

At least 12 units from several area fire departments, including Bellevue, Groton Township, Milan Township, Huron River, Milan and Clyde departments, responded to the Norfolk Southern train yard at about 5 p.m. Saturday.

Flames from the burning tanker cars leaped in the air, catching the power lines above on fire as well. Firefighters were still on scene at about 10 p.m. Saturday, and an official told the Reflector “they’ll probably be there for awhile.”

The fire caused Ohio 4 between Ohio 113 West and Smith Road, Groton Township to close until after 6 p.m., according to the Sandusky Register. 

Officials told the Reflector there were no injuries that resulted from the incident, but could not comment on any further details. 

More details will be updated as information becomes available.
