LOUDONVILLE, Ohio — A cargo train carrying propane and crude zinc oxide derailed early Saturday morning in Ashland County, railroad officials said.

It happened just after 2 a.m. in Loudonville.

Norfolk Southern spokesman Jon Glass said at least 15 cars derailed.  One of the cars carrying propane was punctured, spilling propane at the crash site.  Glass says the railroad company’s environmental team is on the scene cleaning up.

Investigators did not immediately say what caused the derailment.

No one was hurt, and there are no public safety concerns, according to Glass.

Fire HAZMAT crews from Perrysville, Ashland and Mansfield are assisting, as well.
