EDMONTON, Alberta — Canadian National investigators are looking into the cause of a derailment Sunday in Alberta that toppled more than two-dozen freight cars.

Globalnews.ca reports that the train derailed about 3:30 a.m. Sunday southeast of Edmonton near Armena, Alta., with 28 cars on the ground including covered hoppers and at least one car with vegetable oil. The news outlet reports that vegetable oil spilled, but was quickly contained.

The outlet cites railroad officials saying they did not know how long it would take to clean up the right-of-way.

More information is available online.
