(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Minnesota Energy is going to be taking a gas pipe out of service Tuesday morning in Rochester and people will likely notice a massive flame.

The work is being done at the former veteran's clinic building at the corner of the South Highway 52 frontage road and Skyline Drive Southwest.

The pipe is no longer in use and crews need to burn the gas off. A large flame will be present during that work. An exact time of the burning hasn't been released.

Crews say this could be a distraction for people driving on Highway 52. They remind everyone to keep their eyes on the road and pay attention to their driving.
