CINCINNATI – Three tanker cars carrying 90,000 gallons of liquid propane derailed in Cincinnati, and a few businesses just west of downtown were evacuated as a precaution.
No injuries have been reported in Wednesday's derailment, and authorities say they're checking but don't believe the cars are leaking.
Fire officials say two of the tanker cars are on their sides and three box cars also derailed. Authorities say one box car is empty and two are carrying paper.
District Fire Chief Glenn Coleman says equipment has been called in to get the cars upright.
The derailment occurred around 9:30 a.m. just past an overpass. The street under the overpass and a nearby viaduct have been closed.
