A train derailment in northeastern Ohio sparks a large and smoky fire.
A witness said that he was driving in the area at around noon when he heard an explosion and saw a white flash out of the corner of his eye.
He says he then saw an oil tanker explode with flames shooting as high as 60 feet into the air.
He added that other cars were then thrown off the tracks.
The train is thought to be loaded with oil and grain.
The witness says the tracks are about 300 yards from a road, so firefighters are having trouble reaching the area.
