Train Derails and Explodes in Columbus Ohio
COLUMBUS, Ohio - People miles away could see an explosion caused by a derailed train early Wednesday morning.

Fields Avenue, near 5th and 11th avenues, was shut down because of the derailment of four to five cars that were carrying chemicals like denatured alcohol and Styrene, a chemical used to make plastic, shortly before 2 a.m.

UPDATE: Officials say a southbound train with two locomotives and 98 freight cars (1 was empty) of mixed freight derailed between E. 11th and E. 5th avenues. Eleven cars have derailed. It is not known just how many train cars caught fire. At least two are still burning as of 5:15 a.m. Norfolk Southern is working with emergency personnel on scene. Fire officials tell NBC4's Robyn Haines that there is some type of alcohol on board the train that is burning. They will allow the alcohol to burn for the next 4 to 6 hours (as of 6:40 a.m.). At that point they will re-evaluate the situation.

I could smell smoke the entire 20 mile drive to work this morning and had no clue what was going on..i assumed a warehouse fire until my wife texted me. i came in early and am now watching the local news since this derailment is only about 4 miles from my office.

"It was unknown what caused the derailment."

What does cause trains to derail? Could it have been sabotage?

A good friend of mine works for CSX in Columbus and is on the scene texting me. He said the flames were 100 foot high. The train was a Norfolk&southern not CSX but they were on the CSX track.

Thanks for that info from your friend. My wife has been texting me saying the local news keeps changing what they say was in the load of the train. first it was styrene, then "alcohol products", then agricultural products.

About 15 min ago 4 fire trucks and a police cruiser went barreling past my office heading that direction (only 4ish miles from the explosion here)so i'm waiting to see if there were additional explosions/fires (although i'm sure i'd hear the explosion, but again, i have heaphones on so who knows)

At high levels styrene vapor can damage
the eyes and mucous membranes.
Long term exposure to styrene can affect
the central nervous system,
causing headaches, fatigue, weakness,
and depression.
