2 July 2015. The fire was still burning at 8:15 a.m. Thursday, Blount County firefighter Kermit Easterling said. About 5,000 people in the area were being evacuated along with several businesses, Leatherwood said. Also, a manufacturing plant, Denso Manufacturing, closed down Thursday morning because of its proximity to the derailment, Easterling said.  In a statement, CSX said the train car that derailed was carrying acrylonitrile.
