Burlington Northern officials say they still hope to re-open the downtown Grand Forks railroad bridge on Wednesday.

The bridge has been closed since a Friday morning fire caused damage that forced the railroad to re-route traffic.

A report from the Grand Forks fire marshal, on the cause of the fire, could be available as soon as tomorrow.

B-N-S-F spokeswoman Amy McBeth says "we do not believe that it was started by a train."

McBeth says B-N-S-F is grateful for everyone’s patience during the repairs.
