At approximately 6:15 a.m. local time on Feb. 6, 32 cars of a CP freight hauling crude oil derailed west of Guernsey, Saskatchewan.

There were no injuries. CP’s emergency response team and contractors are working with local fire officials to control and extinguish the remaining fires.

Crews are working diligently to ensure the area is cleaned up and restored. CP will work closely with the adjacent landowners in this regard.

An investigation into the cause of the derailment is ongoing.
