BRIDGER, Mont. (AP) — “An evacuation warning is in place for residents near the small town of Bridger in south-central Montana after a train derailed and two cars carrying petroleum ruptured and leaked, authorities said Saturday.

BNSF Railway Co. said there were no injuries, and crews are working with local officials and hazardous-materials responders to safely clear the site.

The derailment of the southbound train occurred on a curving portion of the track about half a mile east of the small town of Bridger, population of about 660. The town is about 45 miles southwest of Billings.

“Two of the derailed cars were compromised and leaked gasoline,” said BNSF spokesman Ben Wilemon in an email to The Associated Press. “The cause of the derailment is under investigation.”
