COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Part of a freight train carrying ethanol derailed and
caught fire in Ohio's capital city early Wednesday, shooting flames
skyward into the darkness and prompting the evacuation of a mile-wide
area as firefighters and hazardous materials crews monitored the blaze.
Southern said it appeared about 11 cars of a southbound train derailed
around 2 a.m. near Interstate 71, southeast of the Ohio State University
campus. They went off the tracks north of downtown, in an industrial
area blocks from residential neighborhoods.
