Tampa train derailment

Posted: Updated:

Tampa, FL - A train has derailed overnight in Tampa.

Officials say the train derailed before 1 AM Thursday morning and at least 15 cars have come off the tracks.

Three are leaking ethanol across the port of Tampa.

A Hazmat team is working to clean up the spill.

They have laid down a coating of firefighting foam on top of the spill to keep it from catching fire.

The toppled train is blocking the main entrance to the port, and may continue to do so for several hours.
