MINOT, N.D. (AP) — About half a dozen cars of a BNSF Railway freight train went off the tracks west of Minot early Thursday.

Ward County Sheriff Steve Kukowski tells KCJB radio that no one was hurt and no hazardous materials were involved.

Kukowski says the cars tipped shortly before 5 a.m. at a spot where the track had shifted. There was no immediate word on when the tracks might reopen.
