SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- A train derailed north of Salem early Sunday, breaking a utility pole that resulted in power outages and causing a small fire.
Michael Williams, a spokesman for Portland and Western Railroad, said that there were no injuries and no hazardous materials were involved.
The cause is under investigation.
Williams said the incident involved the first eight cars of a 29-car train and occurred in the Hopmere area.
Of the eight cars, three carried wood pulp, three carried potassium sulfate and two were empty lumber cars.
Fire officials said a small, smoldering fire that started in brush was a result of the downed lines and was extinguished.
