Train carrying fertilizer derails

PERRY, OK (CNN) - Crews are working to clean up a mess after a freight train carrying fertilizer derailed in Oklahoma.

Several of the train cars carrying the substance derailed, but a BNSF Railway spokesman said only one of them leaked.

Firefights evacuated several homes in the area but residents have since been allowed to return.

Workers hope to have the railroad crossing cleared soon.

Meanwhile, the railroad company spokesman said the cause of the derailment was under investigation.

There were no injuries.
