DENVER (CBS4) – A train crashed through a warehouse on Tuesday morning in Denver’s Globeville neighborhood.

The cars were carrying ethanol — which railroad officials acknowledge is flammable.

The only damage appeared to be a smashed warehouse garage-type door and a fence, with some possible damage to the train car.

The warehouse, located near at 44th and Sherman, has train tracks leading into it. It is located next to the large railyard near the mousetrap — where Interstate 25 and Interstate 70 cross.

It’s not clear so far how the operator of the train cars lost control at about 5:30 a.m.

No one was hurt, but the train came dangerously close to some homes and frightened some residents.

“I felt the house vibrate. I thought it was a bomb or something,” Julian Montoya told CBS4.
