BRONX, NY- (AP) - The Fire Department of New York said there are "multiple injuries" in a Metro-North passenger train derailment, but the extent of the injuries is unclear.

The FDNY said the train derailment in the Bronx was reported at 7:20 a.m. Sunday near the Spuyten Duyvil station. 

The fire department said that 130 firefighters are on the scene.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority reports that four or five cars on the seven-car train derailed about 100 yards north of the station on a curved section of the track. But the MTA said none of the cars entered the Hudson or Harlem rivers, which are adjacent.

The agency said the crash was reported by the engineer and it wasn't clear if any crew members are injured.
