Thousands evacuated after freight train catches fire

Tags:


Thousands of Tennessee residents were evacuated after a US freight train carrying highly flammable and toxic gas caught fire.

Approximately 5,000 people were evacuated following the declaration of a one-mile evacuation zone around the route taken by the CSX train near the town of Maryville, south of Knoxville.

The train, travelling from Cincinnati to Waycross in Georgia, is believed to be carrying liquefied petroleum gas and acrylonitrile – used to make plastic – and which authorities described as a “highly flammable and toxic gas.”
