The evacuees who were staying at a Monument elementary school all day are now all in hotels. That's the word from a Red Cross spokesperson.
The families have been out of their homes since early this morning when a leak was discovered on a train car carrying a hazardous chemical.
Crews are working on cleaning up the leak and transferring it to another rail car for removal.
In all, 255 families are under evacuation orders. 11 families are getting assistance from the Red Cross tonight.
