CN crews clean up molten sulfur spill northeast of Edmonton after train derails
LAC LA BICHE — Crews are working to clean up 50,000 litres of molten sulfur that spilled when seven train cars derailed northeast of Edmonton.
The Canadian National Railway (TSX:CNR) train derailed on Friday afternoon 72 kilometres north of Lac La Biche.
Alberta Environment says a CN dangerous goods team contained the spill from three of the cars and continue to clean it up.
No one was hurt.
The government says molten sulfur doesn’t pose a risk to human health or the environment unless it is heated to an extreme temperature.
CN says the rail line has since reopened.
