Busch Gardens theme park train catches fire in Virginia

WILLIAMSBURG, VA (AP) — Virginia’s Busch Gardens theme park has had its second fire in under a month.


James City County Fire Chief Ryan Ashe tells news outlets a train caught fire in the New France area of the park on Thursday afternoon.


Ashe says a Busch Gardens staff member suffered a minor injury, and the fire was brought under control in around an hour.



Busch Gardens said in a statement that the train wasn’t in service at the time, and no park guests or animals were involved. The rest of the park remained open.
