Train on Fire Behind Martial Arts School in Irvine – Video.

Irvine, California – Fire and smoke in the engine compartment of a train forced it to stop behind our Martial Arts School in Irvine (Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu). According to Orange County Register website officials said, the accident, affected all Inland Empire-Orange County and Orange County lines.

The train was evacuated behind our Martial Arts School in Irvine (Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu), next to La Quinta Inn and Suites. Many passengers came in to our School looking for water and to use the restroom. We are glad we could help the community in that troubled moment! We made sure to offer help and to welcome everyone.

Here is a report we got from the Orange County Register website:

The fire was reported at 8:51 a.m. near Sand Canyon Avenue and Burt Road. The caller reported seeing smoke on the 811 Metrolink train, Concialdi said. At 9:50 a.m., the fire was still burning.

“They were driving and they saw smoke,” he said.

Firefighters and Irvine police officers responded to the scene. The train stopped about three miles south of the Tustin Station.

Power was cut to the train, and the 56 passengers and three crew members aboard were taken by Orange County Transportation Authority buses to the Irvine station, Concialdi said.

The fire is believed to be coming from the engine compartment of the train, Concialdi said. Firefighters were working to extend a long hose toward the train tracks, which were not accessible to fire engines or trucks.

No injuries were reported, he said.

According to Metrolink’s schedule, train 811 heads out of downtown Riverside at 7:25 a.m. and makes stops along Corona, Anaheim Canyon, Orange, Santa Ana, Tustin and Irvine. It was scheduled to arrive at the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo by 8:50 a.m.

Commuters along those stations reported stopped trains there as well.
