The incident occurred shortly after 4:00 p.m. Firefighters from both communities worked together to extinguish the fire quickly. There was no damage to other cars and the fire did not spread to the dry vegetation alongside the tracks. According to the Borden Fire Rescue facebook page, the training that firefighters received last month proved invaluable, as they put those new skills to work  during this incident. Firefighters were back at the hall in Borden by 7:30 p.m. that evening.
