Cost said the cause of the derailment remains under investigation. She said it occurred inside a rail yard and officials are unsure when the tracks will be reopened.
New Martinsville is located along the Ohio River, about 50 miles south of Wheeling, West Virginia.
This story has been corrected to show that six cars derailed, not 10 cars, as CSX had initially said.
