Derailment cleared from railroad near Gillette


    GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) _ The railroad east of Gillette is back open after a 10-car derailment.
    Burlington Northern Santa Fey Railway spokesman Gus Melonas said the line reopened early Wednesday morning.
    The reopening came about 24 hours after 10 empty rail cars used to transport cars went off the tracks five miles east of Gillette.
  No hazardous material was involved and no crew members were injured.
    The train was headed from Pasco, Wash. to Lincoln, Neb.
