Cameron, Texas (AP) — A trailer truck and freight train collided in central Texas on Tuesday morning, causing a major explosion and fire, officials said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries after the collision at Cameron, about 130 miles (210 km) south of Dallas. According to officials, the fire broke out and the nearby house was evacuated.

Judge Steve Young of Milam County told television station KBTX that a truck crashed into a train and 14 trains derailed.

Sheriff Miram County, Chris White, said the train was carrying coal and gasoline, causing a major fire. There were dangerous goods behind the train, but he said they didn’t spill.

“There is no more threat at this point,” White said.
