A cargo train derailed in East Baltimore County around the White Marsh area just after 2pm ET Tuesday.

Baltimore County Police tweeted that there were no immediate injuries and that Hazmat was responding.

CNN is reporting that one person is trapped in the wreckage. According to the Baltimore Sun, the train does not appear to have made contact with nearby buildings and emergency crews aren't engaging with the fire. The explosion could be seen throughout Baltimore County and the city.
