A South Shore train carrying dozens of passengers came to a scary stop
yesterday afternoon near Chicago.
Police say part of the train drew flames because of faulty wiring.
The train was heading to Chicago when a huge pop came from outside the
train.
Police, along with railroad workers, say faulty wiring from the back three train cars
may have caused the blast.
Fortunately, no one was hurt.
More than three hours went by before the train started moving again.
Investigators are still unsure what exactly set off the electrical issue but they
continue to investigate.
