Two people died and 14 were injured on Saturday when a train carrying chemicals derailed in Belgium, causing a major fire near the city of Ghent, a local government official said.

Jan Briers, governor of eastern Flanders, gave the death toll to the Belga news agency after the accident and blaze prompted authorities to evacuate nearly 300 people from their homes.
