Minnesota train leak leads to evacuations

Mar 17, 2007 |

Anhydrous ammonia leaked from a railroad tank car Saturday in southeastern Minnesota. The fumes led authorities to evacuate more than 100 people from their homes in Lake City.

There were no reports of injuries.

Authorities say the leaking car was moved three miles south into an unpopulated area. However, the fumes kept building and the evacuation began. Other residents were urged to stay indoors.

A cap on the tanker car apparently failed. Authorities say they had capped the leak by early Saturday afternoon.

Anhydrous ammonia can be extremely toxic and may be fatal if inhaled.
