A train derailed east of County Road 55 in DeKalb County near Auburn, spilling thousands of pounds of coal.

In all, 12 traincars derailed causing extensive damage to the cars and tracks.

One neighbor that has lived next to the tracks for 23 years told WFFT she knew something had gone terribly wrong when she began to hear a loud squeal coming from the tracks that got louder and louder.

No injuries have been reported.

CSX says it could be days before the mess is cleaned up and the tracks are repaired.
