not planned demo.
Quote:
A fire that broke out Sunday afternoon on a railroad trestle across the Lower Colorado River between San Saba and Lometa continued to burn Monday and officials at the scene estimated the bridge could be a $10 million loss.

The fire started a little after 4 p.m. Sunday on the San Saba side of the river and the 300-yard-long bridge was engulfed in flames when the first volunteer firefighters arrived about 20 minutes later.

Firefighters determined it would be too dangerous to battle the flames from the bridge and decided to let the fire burn.

Monday afternoon the fire was still burning and getting close to the Lometa side of the river where crews were staged to make sure the flames don’t spread past the bridge.

Authorities are still trying to establish what caused the bridge, which was built in 1910, to catch fire.
