On Monday a railroad accident occured when four railroad cars broke free and rolled into a standing engine, creating an explosion and fire in Estill County, say State Police.

No injuries have been reported and plans for an evacuation in Northern Estill County have been changed. After many people left the area, the residents were then told to stay inside and put towels under their doors to prevent smoke from entering the home.

State officials say butyl acetate is burning at the scene.
