EDMONTON, Alberta — Two Canadian National Railway Co. (CNR) cars remain on fire after the derailment yesterday of a train carrying crude and liquefied petroleum gas west of Edmonton.

Residents who evacuated from the rural hamlet of Gainford early yesterday morning won’t be able to return for another 24 to 48 hours, she said.
