Billlings Gazette story.
Burlington Northern Santa Fe reports that 15 rail cars went off track around 2:45 p.m. Sunday. Fourteen of the cars were carrying denatured alcohol, which is used as a fuel additive. The fifteenth car was carrying cardboard.I have not heard whether Warren will be flying out to see his railroad. Images of s'mores just flashed in front of me.
No injuries have been reported. Highway 12, which is near the derailment, has been blocked off at both ends to secure the accident scene.
"Eight cars are on fire. It was chain reaction of one car catching fire and another car catching fire as well," said Gus Melonas, BNSF spokesman. "It's a fuel additive. There are no air quality issues. They are letting the product burn."
