Derailment sparks fire

Authorities are urging residents of Casselton to evacuate after a train carrying crude oil derailed outside of town.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office said Monday night it is "strongly recommending" that people in the town of 2,400 or five miles to the south and east leave. Shelters have been set up in Fargo, about 25 miles away.

The mile-long BNSF Railway Co. train left the tracks about 2:30 p.m. Monday, and as many as 10 cars caught fire. No one was hurt.
