MARION, AR (WMC) - Investigators said a train came off the tracks while passing through Marion, Arkansas, Sunday night.

According to the West Memphis Fire Department, about 27 railroad cars went off the tracks just north of the new Neighborhood Walmart in Marion.

Investigators say the cars were only hauling coal and nothing hazardous.

WMFD said no railroad crossings were blocked and it's not clear what caused the derailment.
