BLOOMINGTON, Md. (AP) — CSX Corp. says no one was hurt in a derailment of 73 cars on a coal train in western Maryland.

Spokesman Bob Sullivan said Wednesday the cars derailed early Monday in the unincorporated community of Bloomington.  He says the cleanup should be finished Wednesday night.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation by CSX and the Federal Railroad Administration.

Sullivan says the train was traveling from Grafton, W.Va., to Mount Storm, W.Va.

A nearby derailment in 2000 destroyed a home and killed a 15-year-old boy.

The derailment was first reported Monday by the Cumberland Times-News.
