SHAKOPEE, Minn. (AP) - The city of Shakopee is sounding the all-clear after a plant explosion rocked the city south of Minneapolis.
Emergency crews were called early Thursday afternoon to a fire at a complex that houses Rahr Malting Co. and Koda Energy.
By mid-afternoon, the city tweeted that there are no air quality or environmental concerns following the Koda Energy silo explosion.
No injuries were reported.
Online photos posted by KARE-TV show smoke billowing from the tall silos at the complex. A ladder truck is spraying water on the fire.
Rahr Malting is a family owned business that began in 1847. It produces and distributes malt and industry-related brewing supplies.
Koda is a partnership between the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux (mid-ah-WAHK'-ah-tuhn soo) Community and Rahr.
Shakopee is about 14 miles south of Minneapolis.
