The incident occurred late Wednesday afternoon along Pacific Street near a Franklin Industries lot. New York and Western Railroad officials said one of the derailed train cars was hauling a flammable gas called isobutylene.
Traffic was not affected by the incident. Officials of the state Department of Environmental Protection were among those called to the scene.
