Watch the Spectacular Collapse of a Flaming Texas Railroad Bridge
If you've ever been curious what it would be like to watch a century-old railroad trestle go down in flames, the video above should give you an idea. The bridge, which spans 900 feet over the Colorado River near San Saba, Texas, was built in 1910 on a spur of the Santa Fe Railroad. The video, perYahoo News
, was shot by by Jamie Smart, a high school principal and member of the Lometa Volunteer Fire Department. The crew was ill-equipped to take on the flaming trestle, which explains why Smart was standing around shooting video, though they did attack the brush fires that broke out post-collapse.
