No one was injured when a trolley became engulfed in flames on Highway 36 in the east metro Saturday night. 

"Crews are operating at the scene of a trolley fire," Roseville Fire Department announced around 7 p.m. "No injuries reported but the 35W/280/36 interchange is a traffic mess. Avoid if possible."

One passerby tweeted video of the incident.

The fire department posted a trio of photos from the scene, two of them showing the charred remains of the trolley and another that shows the trolley completely on fire.
