Drew Ditlefsen was pedaling his Long Haul Trucker cycle Wednesday on Minneapolis' Midtown Greenway when he heard a crash of breaking glass. That was followed by a fwoooosh! and the trail behind him was suddenly lit up with fire.
"At that point I was kind of heading away as quickly as I could," says Ditlefsen, a 27-year-old delivery man for Peace Coffee. "I had the chance to look back, and there were flames a few feet high across the pathway."
