We have just been advised of a major train derailment that is burning railcars near Wadena, Sask.
The CN Rail derailment happened Tuesday morning about 17 kilometres west of the town, which is about 230 kilometres east of Saskatoon.
Apparently, a dozen or more railcars have derailed and flames have engulfed these railcars causing heavy smoke which has been seen pluming from the burning cars.
At this time, it's not clear which cars are burning, however, one of the cars near the fire contains anhydrous ammonia, a highly toxic material used to make fertilizer.
Needless to say, officials are worried about toxic smoke from the burning railcars and are keeping people around the area eight kilometres from the scene.
In addition to anhydrous ammonia, it appears there were also some grain cars and oil cars involved as well.
A CN hazardous materials team is believed to be en route and we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
