TSB to release report on Ontario train derailment


SUDBURY, Ont. – The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is set to release a report today on its investigation into a fiery 2015 freight train derailment in northern Ontario.

In February 2015, 29 cars of a CN Rail train carrying crude oil derailed in a remote, wooded area about 80 kilometres south of Timmins, Ont.

The TSB has said that during the derailment, oil was released from a number of cars and a large fire broke out.

It said a total of 21 cars sustained fire damage that ranged from minor to severe and more than 250 metres of track was destroyed.

No one was injured in the incident.
