Derailed Train Cleaned Up

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA - Burlington Northern Santa Fe crews have cleaned up four cars that derialed on Washington Avenue between First Street and Longfibre Road.  Those cars were carrying butane gas.... But the Yakima Fire Department says the tanks did not leak.  They crashed into a warehouse sunday, damaging a wall and an air compressor... Crews will now work on fixing the damage to the warehouse. This accident caused the Yakima County Sheriff's office on First Avenue to be evacuated.  The building, which is one-third of a mile away from where the derailment happened, was cleared yesterday afternoon, when B-N-S-F crews began their work. Now that everything is cleared, the sheriff's office will re-open this morning.
