A train was in flames Wednesday morning on a bridge in Arizona that partially collapsed, CBS affiliate KPHO-TV reports. It wasn't immediately clear what caused the train to derail, or if anyone is injured. 

The outlet reports that a burning train car was reportedly carrying lumber, some of which went into the lake below the train bridge, Tempe Town Lake near Phoenix.

"I turned around to look and got the fright of my life," said Camille Kimball, who was riding her bike under the bridge just before it collapsed. "Now there's fire pouring into the lake from the middle of the bridge. ... It looks like a scene from hell, truly. A scene from hell. ... The flames are intense and the sky is filled with black smoke."
