ATLANTA – Two people were taken to the hospital with burns after a train ride at the Six Flags Over Georgia amusement park caught fire.

WSB reported that the area around the fire was evacuated Saturday and the fire was quickly put out.

Two employees near the train were taken to a hospital, but there were no visitors on the train at the time.

Video that was sent to WSB shows smoke and flames coming from the train after the engine started on fire.

“The safety of our employees and guests is our top priority. The train is closed for further inspection,” the amusement park said, in part, in a statement sent to WSB.
