Authorities say a CSX chemical train has derailed in Marshall County. No chemicals were spilled.

WTOV-TV reports four cars left the tracks near the Axial chemical plant around 2:30 a.m. Thursday near New Martinsville. Two cars that derailed carried chlorine and two others that left the tracks contained hydrochloric acid.

Marshall County emergency management director Tom Hart says no rail cars overturned, no chemicals were released into the environment and no one was injured.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
