Metro-North trains back on track after fire erupts near station in Yonkers

The Metro-North trains are back on track Saturday night after a fire erupted near a station in Yonkers.

Firefighters battled a storage container blaze near the Greystone Station around 4 p.m. The container held wooden railroad ties that were soaked in a powerful wood preservative. The firefighters heavily doused the container with water to ensure the fire wouldn?t rekindle.

Fire officials say water was pulled from surrounding streets to fight the fire. However, they say firefighters kept the blaze to a concentrated area.
