Authorities say a train hauling ethanol and corn syrup derailed around 1 a.m. Thursday and caught fire in Minnesota. Hundreds of residents within 1/2 mile of the crash were ordered to evacuate from their homes in Raymond, about 100 miles west of Minneapolis. BNSF said 22 cars derailed, including about 10 carrying ethanol, and four caught fire, but there were no injuries. BNSF CEO Katie Farmer apologized for the derailment and said the cleanup would begin as soon as the fire is extinguished. Gov. Tim Walz and railroad officials said they weren't especially concerned about groundwater contamination because much of the ethanol will burn off and the ground remains frozen. Rail safety has been a key concern nationwide since last month's fiery Norfolk Southern derailment in Ohio.
