Watch The Controlled Explosion Of 13 Derailed Petroleum Train Cars

How do you deal with 13 burning derailed train cars carrying crude oil and liquefied petroleum gas? You blow them up, of course.

These train cars derailed in Gainford, Alberta on Saturday. No one was injured in the crash, RT reports.


This is, however, the third time a train carrying dangerous substances has gone off the rails in Canada in the past three weeks. Memories are also fresh of the runaway oil tanker train that crashed into the center of a Quebec town this past July, killing 47 people.

Currently the train cars continue to vent gas and the Canadian Press reports that local residents of the small town of Gainford remain evacuated.
