Trouble On The Tracks

Fiery train derailment still burning near Columbus, Ohio.

Some residents living near the site where a train hauling ethanol derailed and caught fire early Wednesday morning are being allowed back into their homes.

The train left the tracks and burst into flames not far from the Ohio State Fairground in Colubmus.

A shelter was quickly set up at the fairgrounds for residents who were forced to leave their homes.

Two people were injured and are being treated at an area hospital.

Firefighters say they're waiting for the ethanol to burn itself out.

An NTSB team is enroute to investigate the cause of the derailment.
