IRWINDALE- Crews continue to clean up a tanker spill after four cars of a freight train derailed this morning on Azusa Canyon Road.

No one was hurt in the accident, which Los Angeles County Fire dispatch supervisor Andre Gougis says occurred at about 3:50 a.m. Tuesday.

A hazardous materials team responded because of the leak, but Gougis says the substance turned out to be nontoxic.

The incident occurred on tracks belonging to Union Pacific near the intersection of Arrow Highway and Azusa Canyon Road. No streets were closed because of the derailment and no one was evacuated.
