The explosion of at least four loaded tank cars of crude oil this Saturday in the center of a small Quebec town after train derailment killed at least one person dead and caused a large fire ablaze thirty buildings.

At least one person died and another was injured, told a press spokesman for the Sûreté du Québec (SQ, provincial police), Michel Brunet, making a first official report more than twelve hours after the derailment.

The public broadcaster Radio-Canada had previously reported a sixty people missing the call in Lac-Megantic, the city of 6,000 inhabitants located 250 km east of Montreal, where the disaster occurred.

Several people were missing after four tank cars of petroleum products exploded in the middle of a small town in the Canadian province of Quebec early on Saturday in a fiery blast that destroyed dozens of buildings.

The disaster occurred shortly after 1 a.m. when a freight train derailed in Lac-Megantic, a picturesque lakeside town of about 6,000 people near the border with Maine. Although police said they could not yet get close enough to determine whether there were any casualties from the still-burning fires, an aerial photograph showed widespread devastation in the town center.
