The Lac-Mégantic train derailment and fire on July 6, 2013 was a human catastrophe and an environmental disaster. A runaway train containing 74 rail cars of light crude oil derailed and caught fire. The explosions and fire killed 47 residents and destroyed over 30 buildings. This was the deadliest rail accident in Canada since 1864.
