DENVER -- A train jumped the tracks, plowed through a warehouse and a fence and ended up in a ditch near the intersection of 44th and Logan early Tuesday morning.

Neighbors in the area told FOX31 Denver's Shaul Turner they felt an explosion when the train collided with a tractor, and workers were still on the scene trying to clean up the mess as of 9 a.m.

Tracks lead into the service warehouse that the train collided damaged. Instead of stopping inside the building, the train jumped the tracks and went out the back end, where there were no tracks -- just a wall.

Thankfully, there were no injuries involved in the wreck and there were no hazardous materials being carried on the train, so no evacuations were necessary.
