SAN SABA, Texas (KXAN) - A railroad bridge on the northern edge of the Texas Hill Country came crashing down after flames engulfed the massive structure on Sunday.
The bridge spans the Colorado River along the San Saba and Lampasas county line, east of San Saba, Texas, and north of U.S. Highway 190. A foot bridge that crosses the river also burned.
Volunteer firefighters from Lometa and San Saba were on the scene for more than 15 hours. Crews responded to the call at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday and finally left the scene at 8 p.m. Monday.
According to the San Saba County Sheriff, the train trestle was built in 1910 and is privately owned by Heart of Texas Railroad in Brady, Texas.
The company mainly used the line to move sand for fracking from Brady to Lomita.
"It was an area landmark," said Sheriff Steve Boyd. "One landowner actually brought property nearby because he liked looking at the trestle."
Damage estimates run as high as $10 million.
Video shot by Jaime Smart, a member of the Lometa VFD, captured the bridge burning and falling to the ground.
