Be best to let it burn as well as possible as long as nothing else would catch. That way it would minimize methanol in ground water.

Thousands of feet in the air? Lets try hundreds of feet in the air. How about 200-400 feet. I've told you a trillion times not to exaggerate.

According to a friend of mine who lives in that town, it's ethanol, not methanol, that was in the train.

Yeh another article said ethanol. Now I know the mystery of why people seem naturally drunk around there.

is very lucky this did not happen in a city or village, at that time of morning, or a more populated rural area. Could have been much worse. 1 has to wonder what is on these trains that roll through, and what emergency plans are in place for such a thing.
