FERNINDINA BEACH, Fla. -- A train caught on fire and two railroad cars spilled off the track dumping coal near a track in Fernindina Beach Sunday. 

The derailed cars are not blocking any roadways, authorities say.

Fernandina Beach Fire Rescue responded to the scene, near Bonnieview Road and South 8th Street, around 3:42 p.m. to a reported tire fire on the train.

Fire has since been doused. 

The cause of the fire and the derailment has not been determined, said first responding Fernindina Beach Fire Rescue Capt. Tommy Spicer.

No injuries have been reported.
