A train that caught fire and stopped traffic near Anna, Illinois, Tuesday night is back on the move.

The Union County Sheriff's Department say the engineer on the southbound Canadian National train saw smoke coming from the engine and stopped along Kaolin Road.

Deputies say the thick smoke could be seen for miles, but no one saw any actual flames.

It took an hour and a half to fix the problem with the train.
