A fireball erupted from a derailed CSX Corp train hauling North Dakota crude in West Virginia on Monday, lighting train cars on fire, destroying a house, and forcing the evacuation of two towns.
Initial reports claimed that at least one of the tank cars had fallen into the river, but CSX said Tuesday that that was not the case. Amazingly, no deaths were reported; however, one person was treated for potential fume inhalation. As of Tuesday, the train was still on fire and leaking oil, according to Reuters.
