   ROSEDALE, Md. (AP) — Officials say the fire at a derailed chemical-carrying CSX train outside Baltimore is under control.

   Capt. Bruce Schultz of the Baltimore County Office of the Fire Marshal's investigative services announced early Wednesday that the blaze in Rosedale, Md., a suburb east of Baltimore, was called under control late Tuesday just before midnight.

   Schultz says CSX has moved unaffected cars away from the derailed cars and the fire department operations have been reduced to a fire watch at this time.

   Federal investigators will spend the coming days piecing together what caused the train to collide with a trash truck Tuesday afternoon.

   Authorities say some of the derailed cars — at least one carrying hazardous materials — caught fire and an explosion rattled homes at least a half-mile away.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Millions of gallons of raw sewage are pouring into the Mississippi River from a St. Louis wastewater treatment plant where two of three pumps have failed.

Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District spokesman Lance LeComb says the pumps went out on Sunday night, and it's unclear how quickly they may be fixed or replaced.

LeComb says the plant takes in 110 million gallons of sewage a day. While acknowledging the spillage's seriousness, he says the sewage that makes its way into the river is being diluted by the rain-swollen waterway.

He says the spill has been reported to the state.

The spill isn't likely to affect the river's recreational users, given that the currents are dangerously elevated. But many communities downriver from St. Louis draw their drinking water from the river.
