UPDATE: Coggon Bridge Fire

UPDATE: COGGON, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - Authorities in Coggon are investigating what caused a bridge to catch fire late last night.
Just after 8, several departments were called to a railroad bridge over buffalo creek near Third Street.
The heavily traveled bridge was engulfed in flames when crews got there.
Trucks from Coggon, Prairieburg and Central City battled the blaze and had it under control within an hour and a half.
Steve Morissey, who shot this video from his home, says he ran to the bridge as soon as he saw the massive flames.
Fire crews say no one was hurt in the fire.
COGGON, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - Crews responded to a fire on a train bridge in Coggon Wednesday night.
    It was a chaotic scene with fire departments responding from different cities throughout Linn County.
    We're told that some neighbors were sitting outside visiting when they saw a fire on one of the piers.
    The flames then spread to another pier.
    One resident we spoke with says he's lived in the area for twenty years and the bridge is used quite a bit.
    "There was a train coming and they got it stopped. We get anywhere from five to six trains a day that go over that bridge," said Dave Mason.
     As of 9:45 P.M., the fire was out. Crews are now evaluating the bridge for damage.
