Tennessee Train Fire: Evacuated Residents Set to Return Home

Maryville City Manager Greg McClain told reporters the thousands of people who were evacuated from their homes in eastern Tennessee after a freight train fire released toxic fumes this week probably will be allowed to return Friday.
Up to 5,000 people were evacuated from part of the Maryville area, just south of Knoxville, on Thursday after a derailed train car burst into flames that morning.
CSX said the car, part of a nearly 60-car train, was carrying acrylonitrile, a chemical compound used to manufacture plastics.
