BURKE, Va. (AP) -- Authorities say the discovery of a package apparently containing human remains near a rail line in northern Virginia briefly disrupted four commuter trains at mid-week.

Virginia Railway Express officials say the remains were found on tracks near Burke. Four VRE commuter trains were temporarily delayed while authorities investigated the find.

Buses were brought to transport train riders during Wednesday evening’s delays on the VRE system.

Authorities had no immediate coment on the discovery. Local reports said hundreds of commuters were impacted by the delays after the discovery near tracks at the Manassas Park station.
