Metrolink trains in San Bernardino County were delayed Wednesday afternoon because of a freight train that derailed in Fontana, officials said.

Three Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad trains derailed but did not pose a hazard, said Tracey Martinez, spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

Metrolink said in a Twitter message that the entire San Bernardino line was affected by the derailment and that passengers were being bused from the Rancho Cucamonga station.

"All trains will detrain and board from Rancho Cucamonga," Metrolink said.
