Durango Fire & Rescue Authority firefighters on Thursday morning helped personnel from the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad douse two small fires started by the train between Hermosa and Rockwood. During dry conditions, each train is followed by a fire-spotter car with a 30-gallon water tank, one of many precautions taken by D&SNG to deal with the fire threat.
