40 Evacuated in Train Accident Return Home

From Associated Press

About 40 people forced from their homes by a freight train wreck were allowed to return early Wednesday, ending the second evacuation in two days, authorities said.

Two tanker cars containing flammable butane caught fire Sunday and forced the evacuation of 2,000 people. As the train was being moved Tuesday, another tanker jumped the tracks, forcing the second evacuation.
