MAIDEN ROCK, Wis. (WEAU) -- A train containing sand derailed at the Chester Street crossing in the Village of Maiden Rock.

On Sunday, at just about 12 in the morning, the Pierce County Sheriff's Department says they were notified by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway that there had been a train derailment.

Employees of BNSF on scene said the set of cars had derailed when they were in the process of moving them.

An initial report said there were unknown injuries but it was later found that no one was hurt.
