Georgia firefighters battle rail car blaze

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Glynn County firefighters battled a fire
on a train trestle after at least two rail cars carrying Mercedes-Benz vehicles caught fire.

The two rail cars, which caught fire Monday afternoon, were
carrying the vehicles from the Mercedes plant in Vance, Alabama, for
shipment to dealers.

The train cars belong to Norfolk Southern.

No injuries were reported in the blaze.

It was not immediately known how badly the trestle was damaged.

The fire comes just two months after Mercedes-Benz USA opened a
processing facility on Colonel's Island.

The trestle is in the middle of a marsh and connects the port and the mainland.
