ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Scary moments on the construction site of the new Ikea store this morning when a propane tank began to leak.

The 1,000 gallon tank began leaking around 7:30am at the site along Vandeventer and Forest Park Boulevard.

Because it was so windy this morning the fire department decided it was safest to keep the crews away from the area for about an hour to allow the flamable gas to empty out completely.
