Massive fire in Arizona sparked by train derailment

A freight train has derailed in Phoenix, Arizona, setting a bridge on fire and causing its partial collapse. Video images showed huge flames and thick black smoke rising into the air and train carriages on the ground near a lake. None of the train’s crew members were hurt but there was a report of someone suffering from smoke inhalation, said Tim McMahan, a spokesman for Union Pacific Railroad.
