Train carrying liquefied petroleum gas derails in Everett

EVERETT, Wash. -- A train carrying liquefied petroleum gas derailed Thursday evening in Everett.

A "switching incident" at about 6:30 p.m. caused four tank cars to derail at the BNSF Bayside Yard along West Marine Drive in Everett, according to BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas.

The tanks were not significantly damaged and there were no gas leaks, Melonas said.

Everett Fire personnel responded to the scene, but there were no injuries and the crews were quickly cleared.

BNSF workers are bringing in machinery to re-rail the cars, and Melonas said the train should be ready to move by midnight.
