If the weather is a little chilly for you, gather around 5th Avenue SE and Main St. SE in Minneapolis. Two huge flames will be visible until early Wednesday morning. A spokeswoman for City Council member Diane Hofstede the fire is excess propane being burned off by a company that is removing four large underground tanks.
Officials say there’ll be noise involved with the work. Here is the schedule:
Tuesday October 6th burn off the propane in the tanks
Wednesday October 7th excavate the 2 tanks at the east end
Thursday October 8th remove the 2 east tanks and excavate the west two tanks
Friday October 9th remove the last two tanks and backfill the hole
