That unfortunate incident occurred in Rockwood, a Maine community.

There was a railway collision and subsequent fire north of Rockwood. Do not enter if you are carrying something that might cause harm to others. The Rockwood, Maine fire department updated its Facebook page on Saturday.
The Fire Department posted a photo of the incident to their website. It depicts a snowy woodland with a derailed railway and a blazing fire.
Fox News Digital waited for a response from Rockwood Fire & Rescue, but no one came.
Nobody can say for sure if the event caused any injuries.
The distance between Rockwood, Maine, and the Canadian border is around 45 miles. Moosehead Lake may be found to the west of this town in northern Maine.
According to Maine’s Fox 23, Canadian Pacific Railway is the owner of the lines in dispute.
A Canadian Pacific Kansas City Limited employee assured CBS News that the combustible explosives were not used in any explosions.
Three trains and six cars carrying wood and electrical wiring went off the rails in Maine, according to a Facebook post from the Maine Forest Service. A little fire broke out as a result of this. The flames have been extinguished and are still under observation.
The analysis found that there has been no increase in fatal railway accidents involving hazardous materials. The authorities on the site have determined that the presence of potentially harmful items does not constitute an imminent threat of leaks or fires.
Disaster was caused by “a buildup of melting ice and debris that washed out part of the railroad track,” according to the Maine Forest Service, but they have assured the public that they are now in no danger.
