ALMA, Wis.  — Emergency crews are on the scene of a train derailment north of Alma that closed highways and prompted an evacuation in western Wisconsin.

The Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office now says 32 cars derailed Saturday morning.

Parts of Highways 35 and 37 are closed. Emergency personnel are waiting for a crew from BNSF Railway to evaluate whether roads can be reopened and people can return to their homes.

A sheriff’s dispatcher says there are no injuries.
