Several homes in northern New Brunswick have been evacuated east Plaster Rock after a CN freight train derailed and caught fire.
The village's emergency measures co-ordinator says it's unclear how big the fire is or whether anyone was hurt.
Sharon DeWitt also says only a few cars derailed, but she didn't know what they were carrying.
She says the train derailed about five kilometres from the village in a wooded area.
DeWitt says there is one road near the site, which includes a number of homes.
