A train in Emeryville derailed Sunday in the area near 65th Street at Shellmound Street, causing the closure of several streets in the are, but they have since reopened.

The derailment involved six cars around 2 p.m., three of which were refrigerated box cars. The other three were empty tanker cars, and because those tanker cars had nothing inside, they pose no hazards to the community.

No injuries were reported.

A Union Pacific spokesperson said they are investigating the cause of the derailment, along with the Federal Railroad Administration.

The spokesperson said the six cars should be removed from the area by Monday morning.
