Steel Mill That Made Rails Burns
A factory in Lackawanna, New York, that made rail burned this week.
The former Bethlehem Steel mill buildings in suburban Buffalo caught fired after a light bulb touched off flammable materials in the decades-old complex.
The plant made rail that is still used on many railroad lines today. The complex also was used to make steel for locomotives, tanks, warships and automobiles.
The mill that rolled the rails was closed in the 1980s.
