MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - There've been no reports of fatalities after a CSX train carrying a flammable toxic substance derailed and caught fire in eastern Tennessee.
But several police officers had to be decontaminated.
Authorities say some 5,000 Blount County residents within a one-mile radius of the derailment are being evacuated.
A high school in Maryville has been set up for evacuees.
