Train Derailment Causes Fire In West Virginia; Explosions Continue

FAYETTE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- What was described as the "biggest" and "loudest" explosion following Monday's train derailment happened just before 11:30 p.m.

Emergency crews on the scene tell WSAZ that following that explosion all neighbors who were still in the affected area had been accounted for.

The American Red Cross estimated that nearly 1,000 people were affected in the evacuation area but only 85 people were in shelters on Monday night.
