Derailment in CSX Manville Yard

Does anyone have information or pictures of the derailment at the West end of CSX Manville yard?
I believe it happened early today (12/12/16)

Saw a photo on another RF group. Looks like the long orange trash container cars derailed, jackknifed, all upright. the main tracks look unaffected but all five yard tracks need repair. There appear to be no hazmat cars involved.

Thanks ccutler.

I found a YouTube video on the clean up, it starts about 14 min. in.

Considering some of the loads that get switched in Manville Yard, they should do a better job keeping their tracks in pristine shape!
