The locomotive of a freight train derailed and collided with a fence, but remained upright Tuesday in the San Pedro area, authorities said.
Firefighters were sent to the 700 block of North Harbor Boulevard at about 12:40 p.m., according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
No injuries were reported, Stewart said.
The train leaked about 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel, which Stewart called a “moderate” leak.
A private company remained at the scene to clean the spill, Stewart reported.
