  • Lyons. NY HazMat

    LYONS, N.Y. (AP) - Forty people were evacuated Sunday after
    railroad workers spotted vapors leaking from a tanker rail car
    carrying a highly flammable liquid.
    At 1:30 p.m., CSX Railroad employees noticed isopentane vapors
    leaking from the top of the rail car parked in the village of
    Lyons, about 20 miles east of Rochester. Isopentane is an odorless
    liquid that can explode when heated.
    About five hours later a CSX hazardous-material specialist from
    Buffalo tightened the car's cover and stopped the leak, CSX
    spokesman Bob Sullivan told the Democrat & Chronicle of Rochester.
    Firefighters from three Wayne County departments had prepared to
    protect the area had the chemical caught fire, Lyons Fire chief
    Charles Witt said.
    Officials said CSX was moving the car to Canandaigua.
    There were no injuries.
