A freight train derailed in an global tunnel connecting MI and Canada Friday morning involving about 30 to 40 of the train's cars.

The rail company said in a statement about 40 cars reported to have derailed in "various positions" while "at least one auto with unsafe goods is involved".

A CN freight train derailed inside an global tunnel linking Sarnia, Ont., and Port Huron, Mich., spilling sulphuric acid inside, the rail company said Friday.

Sarnia Fire and Rescue Service spokesman Mike Otis said they responded at 5:30 a.m.

One tank vehicle containing sulphuric acid was breached inside the tunnel.

According to the state, the tunnel links Port Huron with Sarnia, Ontario by crossing under the St. Clair River.

Railway crews responded to the incident, and are working with municipal officials in Sarnia and Michigan, CN said.

"At this time, there is no threat to public safety in the surrounding area", he said.

The Transportation Safety Board has deployed a team of investigators to the scene.

Freed says thousands of train cars pass through the tunnel daily.
