(Reuters) - A fire that broke out early Wednesday after 25 cars of a Union Pacific train hauling ethanol derailed at Fort Worth, Texas, has been “mostly contained”, a company spokeswoman said.
Union Pacific was working with the Fort Worth Fire Department and planned to clear the site Wednesday morning, she said.
The company did not have a timeline for reopening the tracks.
The derailment and subsequent fire prompted evacuations in the neighborhood, and there were no injuries, a report with NBCDFW.com said.
The company did not comment on the evacuations.
