NEW BRUNSWICK---Canadian officials prepared
aerial surveillance of a derailed freight train carrying
crude oil and propane yesterday morning to see if
it was still burning, while dozens of nearby residents
remained evacuated from their homes. There were
no reports of deaths.
The derailment late Tuesday in a sparsely populated
region of New Brunswick again raised concerns about
the increasing use of rail to transport oil throughout
Canadian National Railway spokesman Jim Feeny
said crews will use a helicopter early Wednesday to
determine the source and extent of the fire.
Feeny said it appears that 15 cars and one locomotive
derailed, but he said it was not yet clear what caused
it. The train consisted of 122 cars and four locomotives.
Sharon DeWitt, emergency measures coordinator
for the nearby community of Plaster Rock, said it
was unclear whether anyone was hurt. An evacuation
of about 50 to 60 people within a two-kilometre
radius of the fire remained in effect.
A spokeswoman for Ambulance New Brunswick
said no casualties were transported from the site.
The train s engineer and conductor, the only people
on the train, were not hurt in the derailment, he said.
DeWitt said the train left the tracks about five
kilometres from the village in a wooded area. She
said there is one road near the site, which includes
a number of homes.
In July, 47 people were killed in Lac-Megantic,
Quebec, when a train carrying crude oil derailed.
In 2011, around 68,000 carloads of fuel oils and
crude petroleum moved along Canadian rail lines,
according to Statistics Canada. In 2012, that rose to
nearly 113,000. (AP)
MUMBAI---Fire and smoke engulfed three cars of
an Indian passenger train early yesterday, killing
nine people as they slept in the latest tragedy to hit
the country s vast railway network, officials said.
Authorities were trying to determine what caused
the fire to break out before dawn, just hours after the
train left Mumbai on a 48-hour journey to the
Himalayan foothill town of Dehradun, Western Railways
spokesman Sunil Singh said.
TV channels broadcast images of flames leaping
out of the windows and lapping at the metal sides of
the cars. Five of the victims had suffocated on smoke,
while four were burned to death, Railway Minister
Kotla Surya Prakash Reddy said.
The fire spread through three of the train s coaches
before it was noticed by a guard at a railway post,
who alerted railway authorities.
"We made the train stop immediately," railway
official Shailendra Kumar said. Because there was no
road access for firefighters, "passengers and train staff
used fire extinguishers on the train to douse the fire,
but it did not subside."
Firefighters eventually put out the blaze at a stop
further along the track at the town of Gholvad in
The tragedy happened less than two weeks after
another train fire killed 26 people in the southern state
of Andhra Pradesh.
Accidents are common on India s railroad network,
one of the world s largest, with 23 million passengers
daily riding on about 11,000 passenger trains. Most
collisions and fires are blamed on poor maintenance
and human error. (AP)
