PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Union Pacific has resumed train service through the Oregon city affected by last week's fiery derailment.

 

Train

 

As a precaution, the trains passing through Mosier are limited to 10 miles per hour, much slower than the usual 30 mph.

The company restarted service despite objections from the Mosier City Council.

 

At an emergency meeting Sunday afternoon, the council approved a motion demanding that oil be removed from derailed cars before traffic is restarted. They also wanted a thorough investigation before the resumption of "high-risk" traffic.

 

No injuries were reported in the derailment in which 16 of 96 tank cars went off the tracks and started a fire in four of the cars.
