GN Bridge catches fire

The Great Northern bridge on eand a half miles east of Vandalia caught fire last Saturday shortly after No. 1 passed over it and the center of the bridge was entirely destroyed. A freight train was rushed to the fire but too late to save the rest of the bridge. Numbers 4, 224, and the local freight were held up at Hinsdale until early Sunday morning and No. 28 was sidetracked at Vandalia. The fire was supposed to have started from the live coals in ashes dumped from No. 1.
