TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Firefighters in Florida are using foam to clean up ethanol that leaked from a CSX train that derailed at the Port of Tampa.
Tampa Fire Rescue officials say 15 rail cars derailed early Thursday.
The Tampa Tribune reports CSX officials are getting the proper equipment to the scene to upright the train cars.
Officials say it could take much of the day to clean up the area. The access roads to the port are closed, though officials say some nearby roads remained open.
No further details were immediately available.
