A train carrying crude oil derailed near the community of Gogama in northern Ontario, according to a report from Reuters.  The train is owned by Canadian National Railway Co.  The company stated that some of the cars were on fire, and there was oil leaking into a waterway.

There were no injuries reported.  This is the third crude by rail incident to occur in less than a month.  A bridge over the waterway has been damaged, and five tank cars landed in the water.

The crude originated in Alberta and the destination was eastern Canada.

The tank cars were of a newer type designed to be more resistant to damage than previous models of crude carrying cars.
