SACRAMENTO RIVER CANYON, Calif. - Viewer Dan Ryant sent us this video he captured in the Sacramento River Canyon near Gibson. He shot the video on Sept. 8.

A representative from Union Pacific told Action News Now anchor Cecile Juliette that the water cars can be dispatched whenever there is a fire threatening the railroad.

They soak the track, which is mostly concrete in this area, but there are also wooden ties and other structures that the railroad depends on. The siding is wooden, and they have vulnerable signal huts that help with communication between trains and their central dispatch.

They said anytime there is a fire near a railroad track, they will pull out their water cars.

A big thanks to Dan for sharing this cool video with us here at Action News Now.
