Blasting powder detonated just before fire call in Park Rapids
They say in life and in dynamite, timing is everything.
Such was the case Wednesday in Park Rapids.
In a case of unfortunate timing, a jar of blasting compound was detonated at the South Transfer Station just after 4 p.m. The blast was heard throughout the city.
Moments after that a fire call came in. A house downtown was on fire.
The two incidents weren't related.
