  • Authorities are investigating what caused a liquid propane tank to catch fire near the Bobcat manufacturing plant in Wahpeton.
    Fire Chief Derek Miller tells KFGO radio that gas leaked from a pump on one of two 1,000-gallon tanks and somehow ignited early Monday. That created a fireball about 8 feet high and 12 feet wide. No one was hurt.
    Firefighters who responded to the scene had to battle not only the flames but also frigid weather. The temperature at the time was about 24 degrees below zero, and the wind child was about twice as cold.
