Train derails on Canada's border with ND, Minn.

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — The Royal Canadian Mounted Police say a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train carrying unscented propane derailed near Canada's border with Minnesota and North Dakota early Tuesday.

Manitoba RCMP media relations officer Tara Seel says the RCMP responded to a train derailment in Emerson at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. She adds no leaks have been detected and there were no injuries.

Seel says the train was carrying unscented propane, prompting the evacuation of approximately 40 people who lived within 110 yards of the site. RCMP says the train crossed into Canada from Minnesota.

Andrew Kirking is the emergency manager of Pembina County on the North Dakota side of the border. He says the train derailed about 100 yards into Canada but did not affect the nearby North Dakota town of Pembina.
