A Pueblo intersection is expected to remain closed for several days after several rail cars filled with grain jumped their tracks early Friday morning.

The accident happened near 29th and Lowell in Pueblo.

Assistant fire Chief Dennis Rosolini says no one was hurt, but the derailment left behind a big mess.

More than 20 cars full of grain spilled all over the tracks and roadways.

But the train avoided a number of nearby homes, as well as a propane tank.

Clean-up crews responded to the scene within a few hours after the crash, but their job is still expected to take a few days.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
