UPDATE: Crews still working to clean up spill after train derailment
Crews are still working to clean up the spill after a train derailment during last week's ice storm.
23 cars jumped the tracks, including four tankers carrying corrosive acid.
Around 30,000 gallons of the chemicals spilled into Fletcher Creek.
No one was hurt during the crash but about three-hundred fish died during the days after the derailment.
The cars have now been removed from the creek.
Crews plan to remove the acid by neutralizing it and transporting it to a waste water treatment facility.
A health advisory is still in effect for Fletcher Creek.
