A fire broke out “in the engine compartment” of the “diesel powered train” around 7:03 p.m., Johnson said.
The small blaze was extinguished within 15 minutes. Firefighters remained on location for an hour as MTA officials responded to the scene.
All passengers on the train exited safely and no firefighters were injured, according to Johnson.
Firefighters believe the fire’s origin may have been “fuel leaking or electric, but we’re not sure,” Johnson said. Metro-North is currently investigating the cause of the fire.
