LLAWAY, Minn. – Flames from a train derailment and propane explosion late Thursday, March 24, have finally been extinguished, hours after the initial tanker truck and train collision here around midday started a fire that raged through the night.

.

Friday morning, crews were working on cleaning up the scene. Firefighters have now left the area.

Latest: Residents allowed to return to homes in Callaway after train derailment, explosion

.

Two railroad employees were sent to a Detroit Lakes hospital for non-life threatening injuries after the collision, but were released on Thursday.

.

Around 10:20 p.m. Thursday, an explosion shot a ball of flames above the site. No one was injured due the explosion.

.

The midday collision and resulting fire prompted the evacuation of Callaway, a town of about 200 people, 12 miles north of Detroit Lakes.

.

The propane tank, pulled by the semi, caught fire when the truck collided with a northbound Canadian Pacific train in town at 12:25 p.m. The trucks cab separated from the tank.

.

Throughout the day Thursday, firefighters were constantly pouring water onto the blaze. Crews were allowing fuel to burn off and were venting the tank, Grabow said.

.

The fire posed an even greater danger because it was just 150 to 200 feet away from a larger propane tank that sits next to the Callaway grain bins, Grabow said.

DATE: Callaway, MN (WDAY TV) – Flames from a train derailment and a propane explosion has been extinguished and firefighters are no longer on the scene.

.

Two railroad employees were sent to a Detroit Lakes hospital for non-life threatening injuries, but were released on Thursday.

.

UPDATE: Callaway, MN (WDAY TV) – An explosion shook the ground in Callaway as a large propane tanker continued to burn around 10:30 p.m. tonight.

.

No word on any injuries.

.

That’s the semi tanker that was filled with 10,000 gallons of propane when it was hit by a train about 12:30 p.m. this afternoon.

.

Crews have been dousing the tanker trying to keep it cool as the propane burns off.  Homeowners will not be allowed back into their homes in Callaway until at least noon tomorrow.

.

Callaway, MN (WDAY TV) – More than 200 people in a rural Becker County town won’t be allowed home tonight.

.

Crews are approaching their 10th hour on scene in Callaway fighting fires still burning from a freight train-tanker truck collision.

.

One locomotive and seven empty rail cars derailed. Miraculously, the truck driver walked away uninjured. Two train crew members suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

.

That tanker truck was carrying 10,000 gallons of flammable propane. It could be many more hours before crews can fully extinguish it.

.

All of the homes and businesses in Callaway are empty tonight, but a steady stream of fire trucks are running back and forth with water to douse that propane truck.

.

The flames are threatening to catch another nearby 9,000 gallon propane tank on fire.

.

“It’s just not something you think will ever happen in your town,” said Gretchen Stalboerger, Callaway Mayor.

.

The number of emergency vehicles flooding Callaway Thursday rival the number of people who live in the tiny town.

.

“You wouldn’t even think that many people would be responding to a little fire in Calloway.”

.

That little fire is posing a big danger. Virtually every fire crew from Becker County, and many neighboring agencies, are hauling in lake water to douse a tanker truck full of propane.

Gov. Mark Dayton on Saturday is visiting the small northwestern Minnesota town where a train and propane truck crashed, keeping residents out of their homes for almost 24 hours.

.

Dayton will go to Callaway in Becker County in the morning to meet with community members, local elected officials and representatives from the rail company.

.

The visit comes two days after the 237 residents of Callaway had to leave their homes after the crash and derailment about 12:25 p.m. Thursday.
Residents were allowed to return home at 10 a.m. Friday.

.

Firefighters from 21 fire departments and eight law enforcement agencies were sent to douse the flames. U.S. Highway 59 near the track was closed between Becker County roads 14 and 26. Callaway is about 190 miles northwest of the Twin Cities.

.

The railroad reopened for train traffic at 9 a.m. Friday.
