Atlanta's Train Derails Causing Inferno

Ear­ly Fri­day morn­ing, dis­as­ter struck when an Atlanta train derailed, caus­ing its loco­mo­tive to erupt into an inferno. 

Respon­ders raced to the scene of the crash on Defoor Avenue as thick black smoke poured into the sky. The loco­mo­tive had col­lid­ed with oth­er rail cars in the CSX yard, spilling its entire 4,000-gallon fuel load.

Flames leapt wild­ly as the diesel igni­tion spread rapid­ly. Fire­fight­ers attacked aggres­sive­ly and con­tained the con­fla­gra­tion, sav­ing the city from a poten­tial cat­a­stro­phe. How­ev­er, 1,200 gal­lons had already been con­sumed by the rag­ing blaze. 

Crews now face the daunt­ing task of clean­ing up the after­math of the acci­dent. With sev­er­al rail cars dam­aged and tracks blocked, delays will impact trav­el and transportation. 

Inves­ti­ga­tors will try to deter­mine the root cause as removal oper­a­tions get under­way. Despite the close call, quick action pre­vent­ed mass dis­tur­bances and dis­rup­tions in the area.
