SLINGER, WA (WISN/CNN) - Crews are working to clear the scene of a train derailment in southeastern Washington.

Two trains collided in Slinger, WA on Sunday night, causing 5,000 gallons of diesel to spill.

Slinger is about 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee.

Authorities evacuated more than 100 surrounding homes as a precaution, but that evacuation order was lifted at 1:30 a.m. Monday.

A conductor and an engineer were injured, but are expected to be okay.
