Amtrak Says Fire Won’t Affect Beech Grove Shop Operations

Amtrak said on Monday that a fire that destroyed two storage buildings at its Beech Grove shops near Indianapolis will not affect operations of the shop.

The Amtrak spokesman said no rolling stock or locomotives were damaged by the fire.

Firefighters had reported that they were unable to find a working fire hydrant at the shop site and had to run hoses to a nearby street.

However, the Amtrak spokesman said that while the hydrant on Amtrak property that was closest to the fire was dry, other hydrants at the site were operable.

Investigators continue to investigate the cause of the early Sunday morning fire that destroyed two corrugated structures used to store paint and cleaning supplies.

There were no injuries in the fire, which was reported just after 12:30 a.m. and brought under control by 2 a.m.
