Railroad officials are working to restore an area in a Salt Lake City train yard where about 250 gallons of fuel spilled after two engines sideswiped each other and derailed.
Union Pacific Corp. spokesman Aaron Hunt says two engines were traveling in the same direction about 9 p.m. Monday when the tracks converged and the trains collided.
The trains derailed, but did not overturn. No injuries were reported.
A hazardous materials team used barriers to contain the spill, and then used a vacuum to remove the rest of the fuel from the damaged fuel tank.
Railroad officials are investigating why the trains merged at the same time.
