An explosion erupted Thursday at an energy plant in Shakopee.
The explosion happened at Koda Energy in Shakopee, a partner of Rahr Malting Co. No injuries were reported in the blast that erupted in two biomass tanks.
A few nearby homes were temporarily evacuated. The city also asked everyone within a mile radius of the site to remain indoors immediately after the explosion.
The energy plant is an environmentally-friendly energy project with Rahr Malting Co. The two facilities are at the same location, 800 First Ave. W. in Shakopee.
