NS - PA611 Overpass

Saw on WFMZ69 news tonight that the Easton Chromium Plating Plant which is abandoned and is next to this railroad bridge on Rte 611 caught fire due to squatters.Only problem is that there were chemicals in the building which made it a haz-mat situation.I didn't see if railroad traffic was affected.
