Train leaks fuel as it travels through St. Louis

MAPLEWOOD, Mo. (AP) — Officials aren't sure how much fuel leaked from a train as it made its way through the St. Louis area.

 

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that no one was injured in the fuel spill on Tuesday, and no residents were evacuated. The train stopped for repair at around 2:45 a.m. in Maplewood.

Fuel was leaking from a rear engine. Union Pacific called in a hazardous materials team to clean up the spilled fuel, and the leak was stopped.
