MINNEAPOLIS – Emergency responders are on the scene of a likely explosion caused by a gas leak. Multiple news outlets are reporting three people are missing. As of 1:20pm the Minneapolis Fire Department said they are searching for two people who are unaccounted for, a third person who was missing was found uninjured.
One gentleman we talked with who works in the schools accounting office described the event. He said, “It just all exploded, I was pushed down to the floor, and felt all of this dust,” He continued, “It was like this big rush of air that pushed me down and knocked the walls and stuff, and when I came around, that’s when I saw the flames on the other side of the building.”
