MCPHERSON, Kan. (KAKE) - Work continued Monday following a train derailment and grass fire in south McPherson on Sunday morning. 

Fire officials responded at around 9:45 a.m. to the report of a small grass fire in the 1200 block of South Main Street and arrived to also discover a train derailment. 

The city said in a release that the fire was quickly extinguished. Thirteen Union Pacific train cars had derailed, two of which were leaking denatured alcohol.

"Crews worked diligently through Sunday night and mitigated most of the hazmat potential lessening the risk to the environment," the release said. "We anticipate emergency crews being on the scene for most of Monday as hazmat response continues clean-up efforts. Union Pacific can begin moving rail cars once the hazmat potential is alleviated."

There is no risk to the community, the city said, and all roads are open. However, people are asked to avoid the area because there are many agencies working the scene.
