Safety board wraps up ground investigation of New Brunswick train derailment

PLASTER ROCK, N.B. - Canada's Transportation Safety Board says it has wrapped up its investigation at the site of a fiery train derailment in New Brunswick.

Spokesman John Cottreau says investigators finished gathering information at the scene in Wapske on Saturday.

He says the data will be assessed and officials will then decide the extent of their investigation.

About 150 people who had to leave their homes last Tuesday night when the 122-car train derailed were allowed back Saturday.

A CN Rail crew was finally able to extinguish flames overnight Friday that ignited when 19 cars of the freight train jumped the tracks.

The rail company is promising to compensate those whose properties were damaged and had expenses due to the evacuation.
