Train carrying alcohol derailed in Bakersfield

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Several homes outside of Bakersfield were still under an evacuation order early Sunday evening. A freight train derailed Saturday night which led to a huge fire.

Authorities say one of the cars was carrying alcohol, which made the heavy flames and smoke even worse.

Seven homes were evacuated and residents in 30 other homes were told to stay indoors with their windows closed.
