KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Crews are cleaning up tons of grain that spilled after a train derailment in the Northland.

A Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp. train was heading west when it derailed shortly after 10:30 a.m. Thursday near Searcy Creek Parkway and Highway 210.

Kansas City Fire Department battalion chief James Garrett said as the engineers switched from one track to the next one, four cars on the train derailed.

It is too early to tell what caused those cars to flip, but each car was carrying 100 tons of grain. And now most of that grain, if not all if it is on the ground.

"Well it is messy. They can recover the cars, but the good part of that is we have no fuel leaking or oil or anything like that to worry about," Garrett said.

Crews expect the clean up to be complete later Thursday afternoon.

All the train cars contained grain and did not contain anything hazardous.

No injuries were reported.
