A fireball erupts into the sky after a train derailment near Ismay, MT.

ISMAY — A Montana rail line is open again three days after a freight train's derailment caused six cars carrying a fuel additive to explode in a fiery cloud.

Burlington Northern Santa Fe spokesman Gus Melonas says the line in eastern Montana reopened Wednesday afternoon after crews finished repairs to the track.

He says workers will continue to remove rail cars and debris from the site over the next few weeks.

Fifteen tanker cars containing the fuel additive denatured alcohol and one car hauling cardboard derailed Sunday between Baker and Ismay, about 180 miles northeast of Billings

No one was hurt and officials are investigating the cause of the crash.
