A coal train derailed in Caledonia, Wis., Sunday morning, overturning 19 cars.

The Caledonia Fire Department said the 19 cars on the Union Pacific train jumped the track around 7:30 a.m.

Lt. Walter Leininger of the Caledonia Fire Department told Fox News that no injuries have been reported and the scene is not hazardous at this time.

Battalion Chief Jeff Henningfeld said numerous cars were heavily damaged.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation. Union Pacific officials went to the scene, and the railroad sent heavy equipment to get cars back onto the track.

The 135-car coal train was headed from Wyoming to Chicago.
