Manitoba residents evacuated by BNSF derailment back home

EMERSON, MANITOBA (CJOB) - Emerson residents evacuated by Tuesday’s BNSF train derailment are now back home.

Bill Spanjer, the town's emergency coordinator, says the evacuation was lifted late Tuesday night but most of those affected were already in hotels or staying with family or friends.

The propane cars that derailed did not leak, there was no fire and no one was hurt, but authorities evacuated those living nearby as a precaution.

Emerson is north of Pembina, North Dakota, a major border crossing between Canada and the U.S.
