Buffalo Bill State Historical Park and State Recreation Area in North Platte have reopened for business.

A train car fire Thursday produced toxic smoke in the area and resulted in an evacuation. The fire is out and the evacuation has ended.

The fire occurred in a car in Bailey Yard along U.S. Highway 30. Authorities evacuated people between Splinter and Front roads along U.S. Highway 30 north of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. The two Nebraska Game and Parks Commission parks are located in this zone.
