CARTERET, N.J. (AP) -- No evacuations have been ordered after two tanker cars carrying a flammable liquid derailed from a freight train in New Jersey.

Conrail spokesman John Enright says one car is leaning and the other overturned. Enright says the tankers were not compromised and are not leaking.

The derailment occurred Wednesday night on a line off the main track in an industrial section of Carteret.

Enright says no one was injured.

Crews are on the scene trying to upright the tankers.

Enright says the cause of the derailment is under investigation.
