Oil Fire Burns In North Dakota

Oil Fire Burns In North Dakota

Residents of Casselton, North Dakota were asked to leave their homes last night, as an oil fire caused by a train derailment burns itself out. 

A Burlington Northern Santa Fe grain train derailed, hitting an adjacent oil train near Casselton, which is west of Fargo. The crash caused a massive explosion and fireball. No injuries have been reported yet.  The evacuation was voluntary, but officials believe about 65 percent of the residents did leave.
