After a CN train derailment, Sturgeon County residents are heading home.
The incident happened at around 1:30 p.m. in the Sturgeon Valley area. As a precautionary measure, residents were evacuated from two subdivisions, affecting 46 homes. They returned home just after 7:00 p.m.
The railcars were carrying crude oil and two of the cars leaked a small amount of product (30 to 50 litres).
CN personnel did an assessment of the area and determined there's no apparent danger.
Emergency services will be present and clean-up efforts will continue overnight and through the next couple of days.
If residents have any concerns they should call CN public relations at 1-514-399-8803.
