(CNN) -- A freight train derailed Tuesday in Rosedale, Maryland, and one person is reported to be trapped, Baltimore County firefighter Jonathan Meehan said.

Some buildings near the area were being evacuated, Meehan said Tuesday afternoon.

Video from CNN affiliate WBAL showed at least five of the train's cars off the track, and white and black smoke rising in separate columns from the wreckage.

Rosedale is just to the east of Baltimore.
