Part of Route 44 was closed in North Canaan after a freight train derailed in the center of town Tuesday afternoon, according to First Selectman Douglas E. Humes Jr.

The train did not derail into the street, but Humes said a portion of Route 44 was closed for some time while crews worked to make repairs in the area. One has since reopened.

No injuries were reported.
