TRAIN DERAILMENT SHUTS DOWN BALTIMORE

A 60-car freight train carrying hazardous chemicals derailed in a narrow Baltimore tunnel blocks from Camden Yards on Wednesday, sparking a fire that shut down much of the heart of the city, sent ballplayers running from Oriole Park and led residents to evacuate or huddle indoors with their windows shut against the acrid smoke. State highway officials closed all major roads into the city, but most were reopened Wednesday night. The chemicals included propylene glycol, generally used for de-icing fluids, and hydrochloric acid.
