Crews spent Tuesday cleaning up a mess after three train cars derailed just south of Kellogg near downtown Wichita on Tuesday morning, authorities said.
The derailment occurred at 5:19 a.m. at Gilbert and St. Francis, about two blocks south of Kellogg, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the derailment is still under investigation.
Hazardous-materials crews were called to deal with a small leak of sodium hydroxide, authorities said, but the spill was not hazardous.
Never miss a local story.
Crew members on the scene Tuesday night said the rail line was expected to be back in service before midnight.
