A train carrying crude oil has derailed near Gogama, closing Highway 144.

Photos showing clouds of black smoke have been posted on social media.

At about 4:30 this morning, Ontario Provincial Police closed the highway between Highway 560 (at the Watershed) and Mattagami Reserve Road. There is no detour and no word how long it will be closed.

This comes shortly after another derailment in the same area and it is the fourth derailment for CN Rail in Northern Ontario since the start of the year.
