Remember that wild scene in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter when that wooden bridge was set ablaze? Well, as you'll see in this unbelievable video, sometimes reality can match the best that special effects has to offer.

This railroad bridge used to run across the Colorado River between San Saba and Lometa in the U.S. state of Texas. Firefighters spent 15 hours in a futile attempt to extinguish the fire, but they eventually gave up, deciding that it should just burn out.

Either that or they really, really wanted to see the whole thing collapse.
