Grand Avenue South
Fire officials said they’re still uncertain what caused the Tuesday afternoon explosion in a Lyn-Lake home that shook the neighborhood. No one was hurt in the blaze. The Minneapolis Arson Unit said the fire originated in the living room in the center of the second unit on the first floor of the four-plex. However, the cause of the fire is “undetermined.”
No one was injured, but a dog did die in a Tuesday afternoon house explosion in the Lyn-Lake area of Minneapolis that rocked the neighborhood. The home — that was unoccupied at the time — on the 3000 block of Grand Avenue South burst into flames as a result, and Battallion Chief Michael Fust believes gas was the cause of the one-alarm fire.
The man who was shot and killed in a shooting on the Fourth of July has been identified. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner said 26-year-old Muhyadin Mohamud Farah died of a gunshot wound to the chest on Thursday.
