Two men are said to be hospitalized after an explosion at a scrapyard in the Twin Cities.
Reports say it happened late Saturday morning on St. Paul's west side, while the two victims were apparently trying to recycle a compressed gas cylinder.
According to KSTP, the tank exploded when the pair cut it into it, believing it to be empty.
The station says a chunk of the cylinder was found a block and a half away, having been sent flying by the force of the blast.
One of the men was "severely" injured, the Pioneer Press reports, adding that both victims were transported to Regions Hospital, where their conditions are unknown.
A building exterior was damaged at the scrapyard, and Xcel Energy was called to the scene as a precaution, the paper notes.
