VIDEO: Train Cars Explode in North Dakota

Freight train derails 20 miles outside Fargo, ND

Plumes of thick, black smoke are billowing into the sky in North Dakota, after a freight train went off the tracks outside Casselton, just 20 miles west of Fargo.

People within a 10 mile radius are being told to stay indoors after 7-10 of the oil cars exploded.

The explosion occurred after the train went off the tracks, and collided into another train.

No injuries have been reported, and no reason for the explosion has been given while firefighters engage the giant blaze.
