LEEDS — A portion of Route 219 was closed Friday morning after five boxcars went off the track at routes 219 and 106.
The cars were carrying chicken feed, according to Federal Railroad Administration spokesman Robert Kulat. No injuries were reported and no hazardous materials were aboard, he said. The cars did not overturn.
His department sent one inspector to the scene and Maine sent an inspector, Kulat said. No investigation is planned, he said.
The Androscoggin County Sheriff's Office said it does not know what led to the derailment.
The office said a crane was on its way from Massachusetts to help pick the cars up.
