Some West Virginia residents return home after train derails

Some of the 1,000 residents evacuated in Fayette County, WV are slowly returning home.

It comes after a train hauling crude oil crashed in the town and then exploded.

Tuesday night, about 150 residents were allowed back into their homes.

A company is now working with the American Red Cross to provide a warm shelter for the other residents who are still evacuated.

Crews are still working to determine why the train derailed and the environmental impact the massive explosion could have on the county.
