On May 15 2021, at 1330, a southbound Union Pacific train coming through Albert Lea on a Union Pacific rail line derailed at Goose Lake and Eastgate Road in Albert Lea. Freeborn County Sheriffs office, Albert Lea Police and Albert Lea Fire Rescue were dispatched to the site.

Approximately 20 rail cars derailed along the rail line near Goose Lake. There are no injuries. A perimeter was set up to secure the area. Minnesota Chemical Assessment Team from Rochester Fire, MN DNR, and Freeborn County Emergency Management are also on scene.

At this time, there is no immediate harm to the public in the area. We are asking that the public stays out of the area to allow crews access for working. Union Pacific crews and contractors are onsite and will be working to clear the line. Further updates will be provided as available.

What an awesome group of people doing fantastic job!!
Just a suggestion as a former Firefighter of Minnetonka, MN . We used to have the Boy Scouts shovel out our hydrants in the winter. I guess they got a badge from the Scouts for doing it. You might want to talk to your local Scout leader if you have Scouts there in Albert Lea!
After being a long time critic of the Albert Lea Fire Department and the high costs associated with pensions, salaries and the fire station, I can now sincerely say they are worth every dollar.. If you have ever experienced the fear of losing someone close to you, it is no different after calling 911 because of an overwhelming fear that you are about to lose something that is very near and dear to you and every minute feels like ten while waiting and wishing for a miracle..Then only minutes later you hear the siren and the horns of rescue just barely in the distance.. All of a sudden a group of red vehicles quickly find their spots and like a well trained and organized group of professionals are racing into what I was fleeing only moments before.. And like clockwork one was doing this and another was doing that all the while they are watching each others backs in preparation of entering an unknown place with no visibility and knowledge of explosions and fire, they do something that can only be described as heroic.. Yes my home endured some really bad bumps and bruises but thanks to the Albert Lea Fire Department, she will live another day..
