NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA -- A train carrying propane and crude oil derailed and caught fire near the border of the US and Canada.

No one was injured, but 45 homes were evacuated when the train derailed near the village of Plaster Rock, New Brunswick.

Canadian officials are investigating but haven't said why they think the train derailed.

This latest derailment comes a little more than a week after a train carrying crude oil in North Dakota derailed and exploded.
