FRANKFORT, Kan. (AP) — Marshall County sheriff's officials say a train derailed in the northeast Kansas town of Frankfort, causing some highways to close.

No injuries were reported after the derailment Monday morning.

Pat Demelo, office manager for the Marshall County Sheriff's Office, says the train derailed at the west and south railroad crossings in Frankfort. It wasn't immediately clear what the train was carrying but Demelo says no hazardous substances were involved.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Kansas Highway 9 is closed at Blue Rapids and Kansas 99 is closed at Blaine until the train can be removed.
