Derailment scare over in Quebec

Eight families were allowed to return to their homes Saturday, 24 hours after a freight-train carrying creosote derailed in their community.

Four cars of a CN train overturned Friday night in Brossard, a suburb south of Montreal.

The creosote, a brown oil distilled from coal tar, did not leak. But people nearest to the derailment were forced to leave their homes as a precaution.

No one was injured.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
