North Dakota Train Derailment Explosion Caught on Video

A train derailment resulted in a massive fireball explosion near Casselton, North Dakota Monday. No injuries have been reported at this time.

Residents in and around Casselton and those to the south and the east were advised to leave due to concerns that heavy smoke from the blaze would envelop the area.

The accident occurred at 2:10 p.m. near Casselton, about 25 miles west of Fargo. As of 9:20 p.m. twenty-one railcars were still ablaze.

One railcar can hold about 700 barrels of oil.

City officials said the series of explosions shook the windows of the town’s businesses  with blasts reverberating the area for more than an hour after the crash.

The above video was sent in to the KFGO News Room by a KFGO listener, Darrin Radermacher.
