Mpls. Building Evacuated Over Gas Leak

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A potentially dangerous gas leak forced nine Minneapolis families out of their homes for the night.

The Minneapolis Fire Department evacuated a apartment building near Franklin and 3rd Avenue South in Minneapolis last night.

Tests showed the building had enough carbon monoxide to make people sick from exposure in around 3 hours.

Crews say the problem was pinpointed in the boiler room of the building’s basement.
