Firefighters from several departments responded to the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer on Saturday morning after it was reported that several rail cars were on fire.

The fire was reported just after 7:00 am. The burning cars were located on a series of tracks on the back side of the museum property. They appeared to be old and unrestored cars.

The burning cars were located on a rail line that was between other lines, so firefighters had to bring hoses beneath rail cars that were parked on the other line. Firefighters had to crawl between and beneath rail cars to get to the burning cars.

Fire officials on scene pointed out that this is the third suspicious fire in the last three days. On Thursday morning, several cars at an auto repair shop near the Transportation Museum on S. Salisbury Avenue were burned. On that same morning, the law firm of Whitley, Jordan, and Inge, located on S. Main Street in Salisbury, was gutted by fire.

Investigators have said that someone did set the fires at the repair shop and the law firm.

Any info as to which cars had the fire, or the extent of the damage to those cars?

Hot links are only as good as the source remaining unchanged. It looks like one of the cars is a former troop sleeper.

Thank you to all of the citizens who provided tips regarding the recent car fires that were reported on the morning of 01/07/2021.
Today, Detective Sergeant File and Patrol Officer Bane apprehended Brandon Alexander Payne.
He was charged with 4 counts of burning personal property and currently resides in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $30,000 secured bond.
As always, please continue to report any suspicious activities that you may notice in and around your community.

Additionally, as many of you are aware there was a fire involving multiple rail cars at the North Carolina Transportation Museum earlier this morning. That fire is still under investigation by multiple federal, state, and local agencies. We would like to thank all of the agencies that responded to the scene this morning and coordinated the investigation."
