I listened to this incident for a while. I do believe they thought that a passing UP train might have caused this fire. They were stopping the eastbounder in Newcastle and sending a CalFire investigator to Newcastle. The bombers left the incident and followed the tracks to the waiting train to see if there were any other spot fires.
