ELKO, Nevada — Emergency officials were responding to a train derailment in Elko Wednesday morning.

Elko County Public Safety in Nevada says the train is carrying hazardous materials, including ammonium nitrate, grenades and bombs.

I-80 is closed in both directions — between mile marker 350 through mile marker 356, according to NDOT.

One first responder on scene told KFBK no train cars off the tracks were carrying anything dangerous.

It was unclear what caused the derailment.

No injuries were immediately reported.
