Two train derailments over the weekend in the region.

A train left the CP rail tracks near Dinorwic on Friday afternoon.

The incident was minor and no one was injured.

The Transportation Safety Board is investigating a derailment, east of Fort Frances.

A team of investigators was deployed after 35-five cars left the CN rail track Friday afternoon, just east of the level crossing on Highway 11-71 in the township of Alberton.

It's reported that two of the cars contained dangerous goods, but nothing spilled.

A small grass fire also broke out, but was quickly extinguished.

No one was injured.
