Smoke at Cannondale last night resulted from MTA diesel failure

Black smoke coming from a train stopped at Cannondale station last night around 5 was not the result of a fire, Wilton Fire Department confirmed today.

Instead, the department said, the smoke was the result of a failure within the train's diesel engine.

By the time they reached the train, the fire department found all passengers had been evacuated from the train. They also said no smoke was coming from any of the passenger cars.

The train briefly blocked access to the Cannon Road area from Route 7.
