DU­LUTH, Ga. (AP) — Gwin­nett County fire of­fi­cials say seven chil­dren on a day­care field trip have been treated for burns they suf­fered dur­ing a visit to a rail­way mu­seum.

Gwin­nett County emer­gency ser­vices spokesman Tommy Rutledge said in a state­ment that the chil­dren were on a full-size train ride in Du­luth on Tues­day when hot em­bers blew from the train’s stack and landed on the group.

Rutledge says the chil­dren, who were be­tween 4 and 11 years old, suf­fered mi­nor quar­ter and dime-sized burns. He says some chil­dren were burned mul­ti­ple times.
