EXCELSIOR, Minn. (WCCO) — Police say an explosion in the boiler room of an apartment building has left residents without heat.

The South Lake Minnetonka Police Department said the explosion occurred around 1 a.m. Saturday at 500 Linden Street in Excelsior.

Crews evacuated all residents from the building and say there were no injuries.

They are working to get the boiler on and working again to restore heat to the building. Police say some residents returned to their apartment units, while others went elsewhere.

    The heat had actually been out for several hours before the explosion, but it wasn’t considered an emergency. Then, after we started smelling gas and calling that in, the apt. manager’s answering service finally paged someone, but it was still quite awhile before we got help and by then, it was too late.
