On December 6, 2006 an explosion occurred at an industrial complex near downtown Milwaukee injuring 30 people as debris was sent into the sky, a fire official said. The explosion set fire to a Falk Corp. warehouse and could be felt a mile and a half away, fire Lt. Brian O'Connor said. Construction workers, working at nearby sites said they heard a loud boom and saw black smoke and flames shooting from the buildings.
Construction crews working on buildings at adjacent areas are being sent home by their companies because of worry about smoke from the spreading fire. The blast ruined Falk's wood frame warehouse and numerous cars, along with several other buildings in the complex, O'Connor said. The fire spread through rubble covering several blocks. It was not immediately known what caused the blast.
Falk constructs large industrial gears and couplings, employing more than 700 people in Wisconsin. It is a subsidiary of West Milwaukee-based Rexnord Corp., a manufacturer of mechanical power transmission components with annual revenues of approximately $800 million. One Falk employee said the company started to evacuate workers this morning after a leak occurred in one of six large propane tanks behind a building workers annex. He and others were outside when the tank exploded.
