Yet another oil train has ignited after derailing in Canada, one of a series of accidents for the crude oil by rail sector in North America.

The train came off the tracks in New Brunswick on Tuesday evening and though no one was injured, residents of nearby village Plaster Rock were evacuated, reported Reuters.

A train collision in the US state of North Dakota was ablaze before New Year’s Eve and earlier in 2013 a deadly crash in Quebec killed 47 people.
