They didn't even bother to extinguish the fire... It was all planned ;)

Uncontrolled fires are of course terrible, but this was fucking awesome! The burning bridge was beautiful, and when it fell... Like others said: Looks like it was planned. Great clip!

Only in ancient Texas would there even be a railroad bridge made out of wood at this point in time.

A little research done and results came up rapidly... According to these (and a few others)

It wasn't planned.... after trying to put it out it was simply deemed too dangerous to try and continue fighting it.....

When was that built... 1872?
Perhaps now they've got an excuse to build it using modern materials.
