Busch Gardens has had its second attraction shut due to a fire.
The train, located in the New France Area of the park, caught on fire late Thursday afternoon. James City County Fire Department responded to the fire and it was quickly brought under control.
Busch Gardens says one employee suffered minor injuries.

The areas around the ride were closed for a bit yesterday afternoon but the park remained opened. Busch Gardens says the train that caught fire was not in service.
