An Oil Train is On Fire in the Columbia River Gorge. Opponents Have Long Warned That Would Happen – Blogtown – Portland Mercury

From June 3

Shortly after noon today, a Union Pacific train hauling oil-filled tank cars derailed near the tiny town of Mosier, closing down I-84 east of Hood River, forcing the evacuation of schools, and sending a massive black plume into the sky.The live feed from a KGW helicopter shows at least one car is still engulfed, while others are littered the track, their axles akimbo. A Department of Forestry spokesman has been quoted as saying the incident involves eight cars filled with oil. The train is clearly longer than eight cars.
