Another train derailment in north

Highway 144 has re-opened following a train derailment early Saturday morning.  Thirty-five CN cars derailed just a few kilometers south of Gogama and caught fire which crews fought well into Sunday.  Five others went into the Mattagami River system prompting a warning to residents of the Mattagami First Nation not to drink the water.  The rail cars were carrying crude oil.  The cause for the derailment isn’t known yet.  Although Highway 144 has re-opened, OPP say they might need to close it periodically so rail cars can be removed.
