GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) - A number of local families are fed up with what's happening on their roads after dark. Neighbors say tire marks up and down this street are a sign of what will happen around midnight. A stretch of residential road often turns into a racetrack, which is what people here want to stop. Edmund Brown, GF resident: "15th Street is a hot rod center for all the juveniles. They figured they can do what they want to do down here and they just burn rubber all night long. Sometimes it’s at 11, 12 o'clock at night."

They'll also be doing so while sporting a new look.

DRAYTON—Roads closed and businesses were evacuated in Drayton on Monday after a propane tanker started leaking gas outside of a station. The situation was resolved and investigators have given everyone the "all clear." It started at 10:15 a.m. on Monday morning, when someone with Northdale oil realized that the truck was leaking. It was a propane truck, not an actual gasoline truck, so there wasn't gas on the road but rather vapor being emitted into the air.
