The Columbus Dispatch, "Ohio's Greatest Home Newspaper," has been publishing from Columbus, Ohio, since 1871.
We've been posting on Tumblr since 2010.
A train derailed with an explosion igniting the contents of two rail cars early today just south of the Ohio State Fairgrounds, shooting flames that illuminated the night sky.
The derailment occurred shortly after 2 a.m. on a curve on the Norfolk Southern track just west of Fields Avenue and south of E. 11th Avenue.
Roughly 100 residents living within a one-mile radius of the derailment were evacuated to the Rhodes Center at the fairgrounds, said Columbus Fire Battalion Chief Michael Fowler.
