Plaster Rock Man Didn't Hear A Thing

Danny Braun of Plaster Rock tells us he didn't hear anything and didn't know anything was going on.  

The organizer of the World Pond Hockey Championships lives 4 to 5 miles from the site of the train derailment and fire.  

He tells CHSJ News he heard about it from his daughter who is at university in Fredericton.

He says it seems to be under control now.  He says it was on fire most of the night and after the rail cars derailed he knows 40 to 50 home were evacuated.

Braun says he's hearing the derailment has caused significant damage to the tracks but he tells us he can't smell any smoke adding in the town you can't really tell anything is going on.
