Evacuation lifted at Ky. train derailment site
Sunday - 11/4/2012, 6:37pm EST
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Evacuations have been lifted and homeowners are being allowed back into the town of West Point, four days after a chemical fire started at the site of a train derailment.
The Louisville mayor's office said Sunday that two rail tank cars containing hydrogen fluoride were moved and stabilized and all restrictions have been lifted. That includes a 1.2-mile evacuation zone and a shelter-in-place order for anyone within 5 miles of the site.
The fire burned out on its own Sunday morning as crews moved the two cars.
Hundreds of residents were given little notice to evacuate on Wednesday after a worker's torch ignited fumes at the site. The train derailed Monday.
