Crews are working to clear a Canadian National train derailment in downtown Proctor.

Proctor police say that the train came off the tracks around 6:00 p.m., and was blocking 2nd St. on Friday night. The cleanup effort was expected to last at least until midnight. 

Doug Bolander, a Proctor patrol officer who responded to the scene, says none of the train's load was spilled and there were no injuries reported. Bolander also said that the cause is believed to be a build up of snow on the tracks.

The area saw about 6 inches of snow on Friday.
