ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -

No injuries have been reported after a tanker car derailed in a North Texas accident that knocked over a power pole and interrupted electricity to hundreds of people.
    
The Arlington Fire Department said crews early Friday located the derailed car hauling about 28,000 gallons of ethanol.
    
Lt. Kevin Seeton said nothing spilled. Seeton says a private company lifted the rail car, making the tanker upright for unloading the cargo.
    
Dallas-based utility Oncor on Friday reported about 360 customers in Arlington affected after the accident that took down a utility pole.
    
Further details weren't immediately available.
