At Least 20 Homes Evacuated After Train Derails in Ft. Worth
Haunting images show the aftermath of a train derailing in Fort Worth early Wednesday morning.
WFAA-TV reports that cars carrying ethanol caught fire after leaving the rails near Yuma Drive and Riverside in Ft. Worth. Noxious fumes prompted the evacuation of at least 20 nearby homes.
Fort Worth Fire Department's Glen E. Ellman reported that crews were dispatched to the fire around 1 AM. Thankfully there were no injuries, and HazMat teams were at the scene.
Ellman shared video and images from the site, which included a fire department command vehicle in flames. Ellman said that fire was not related to the ethanol fire, but did not provide details.
Pacific Union officials are investigating the cause of the derailment.
