Fire on Six Flags Over Georgia ride sends two employees to hospital (VIDEO)

Officials with the theme park told Channel 2 Action News that the train's engine started on fire.

Two employees near the train had to be taken to a hospital.

The park said there were no parkgoers on the ride, but one guest did receive an injury from the incident. The person was treated at the park's medical center and released.  

Employees could be seen on the video moving people away from the train as loud pops could be heard coming from it.

Six Flags officials said the employees were taken to the hospital as a precaution.
