CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - A train is now moving again Tuesday evening after it had derailed in North Caddo Parish, blocking a railroad crossing.

Kansas City Southern officials said a locomotive an empty rail car jumped the tracks around 3 p.m. near Highway 1 just south of Rodessa. That sparked a small brush fire, which was snuffed out by Caddo Parish firefighters.

The train did not topple, and nothing was spilled out of it, but the derailment did cause a blockage at a nearby RR crossing. The intersection leads into a private oil rig, so it did not affect public traffic. 

No injuries have been reported, and KCS is investigating the cause of the fire and the derailment, said spokeswoman C. Doniele Carlson.
