Explosion Rocks Longfellow

Hovde’s Auto Repair at 38th Ave S & 34th St E is no more:

Hovde's Auto Repair - Post Explosion

Apparently, it blew up last night. I heard about it on Matt Desmond’s Flickr photos. It’s only 8 blocks from Casa de Kohler, so I biked over to check it out. There’s absolutely nothing left.

Camera crews from KSTP and WCCO were on the scene, getting scooped by Matt and me.

I have more photos on my Flickr account accessible by clicking the above image.

I heard a few people walking by talking about the explosion. One woman who was walking her dog said she felt it. There was chunks of the building across the intersection, so I think it was a pretty significant explosion.
