A fiery freight train derailment early on Friday forced authorities to evacuate residents of the small community of Tiskilwa in north-central Illinois. Capt Steve Haywood of the Ottawa Fire Department said the train's tanker cars were shipping ethanol for Decatur-based corn processor Archer Daniels Midland, and possibly other materials and chemicals. At least six tanker cars are burning, Haywood said.
