VICKSBURG, MS, Dec. 13, 2010 (Local News) -A weekend train derailment near Vicksburg has left International Paper Co. temporarily without rail access to move inventory in and out of its local plant.

The Vicksburg Post reports a train pulling 30 freight cars carrying huge rolls of paper left the tracks and caught fire Sunday afternoon near U.S. Highway 61 North and Mississippi Highway 3.

IP spokeswoman Amy Sawyer says company officials are gathering information about the incident. She says 18-wheelers can be used to transport products.
