Only a few dozen people remain evacuated from their homes in the wake of a chemical spill in Willard.

As of Friday, 34 homes closest to the CSX railyard remain off-limits as the cleanup continues.

CSX says four train cars derailed during a switching operation late Tuesday night. One tanker car was punctured, spilling thousands of gallons of a hazardous chemical.

More than 400 homes were evacuated, forcing residents to temporary shelters and hotel rooms. Most of those evacuees were able to return Thursday afternoon.

CSX says the air is now safe. Railroad investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the derailment.
