While the cause of the fire is unknown, officials speculate that it could have been started by a campfire adjacent to the bridge, or by sparks from a train that recently traversed the line.

West Coast Oregon. Wooden trestle means its probably a secondary line.

Given the images above, I would guess it is here

Timber trestle approaches to a two span steel truss bridge, not unusual on a main line for the north-west US. Seems to be the main line for UP there too, so will impact a fair bit of traffic.
