CLAIBORNE PARISH, LA (KSLA) -
Five rail cars containing hazardous materials went off track Monday afternoon in north Claiborne Parish, but no chemical leaks have been found.
Still, authorities have cordoned off a one-mile radius surrounding the train derailment as a precaution. Claiborne Parish Sheriff's officials say the nearest residence is about two miles from the derailment.
The derailed cars contained five chemicals: chlorine, sulphur, benzine, methyl, and alkamide. The sheriff's department dispatched hazardous materials technicians to the scene.
But the next concern is moving the cars. Railway officials must keep the tanks from leaking when they are picked up and put back on the track.
An investigation is underway to determine why the cars jumped the track.
No deaths or injuries are reported as a result of this derailment. The train belongs to Louisiana & North West Railroad out of Homer, Louisiana.
