A leaking rail car along Hwy. 10 on the Minnesota side of the Hwy. 10 bridge prompted closure of the road at St. Croix Trail and downtown Prescott Wednesday afternoon.
The incident was first reported to Pierce County authorities by a Burlington Northern-Santa Fe train crew about 4 p.m.
A crewman said the 76th car on the eastbound freight was leaking fluid and they were requesting a response by the Prescott Fire Department.
