Officials say emergency crews are responding to a fiery oil train derailment near the eastern North Dakota town of Casselton.

BNSF Railway spokeswoman Amy McBeth says the several rail cars from the mile-long train derailed and caught fire at about 2:10 p.m. Monday less than a mile from the city.

Cass County Emergency Manager Dave Rogness says the town's 2,400 residents have been told to stay indoors as a precaution. He says there have been no reports of injuries.

Rogness says crews on scene are reporting as many as a dozen rail cars left the tracks. He says crews are calling for truckloads of sand to help contain leaking material.

Rogness says the derailment occurred near the city's ethanol plant.

Casselton is the hometown of Gov. Jack Dalrymple.
