Train derailment, ethanol spill shuts down Tampa port

NBC News- by Matthew DeLuca

A train derailment shut down the Port of Tampa in Florida on Thursday morning after several cars leaked ethanol.

Fifteen train cars derailed and three spilled ethanol, Tampa Fire Rescue officials told NBC News affiliate WFLA. Hazmat crews responded to the derailment around 1 a.m. local time, which caused no reported injuries.  

The cleanup may take longer than 24 hours, WFLA reported.
