NORTHFIELD, Minn. (AP)--Authorities say a derailment of 26 cars on a Union Pacific Corp. (UNP) freight train near Northfield has caused a leak of sulfuric acid.

Union Pacific spokesman Mark Davis says the derailment occurred near a residential area at about 2 a.m. Monday.

Davis says no injuries were reported from the derailment and no evacuations had been ordered as of 6 a.m.

Davis says the acid was leaking slowly from only one tanker car.
