ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) _

The derailment happened Friday evening in Atchison.

Atchison Fire Chief Michael McDermed says about 25 to 30 cars
were involved.

No one was injured.

The train had three cars with radioactive material, but they did
not appear to be damaged.

McDermed says train traffic likely will be rerouted for several
days.

A spokesman for BNSF Railway did not immediately return a call
seeking comment Saturday.
