Lac Megantic War Zone

Recommended Posts

from what we know so far, a fire broke out in the engine compartment of the locomotive after the engineer had parked it for the night in another smaller town about 10 miles from Megantic. Speculation has it that the air brake released somehow and gravity led the train down the track. Witnesses say that the train was again on fire before it derailed.

Over 30 buildings burned to the ground. Half of downtown gone in smoke. 13 confirmed dead and dozens still missing.
