---- — MANKATO — A loud blast Friday evening led several residents of the Sibley Park neighborhood to call authorities, but it was just an equipment malfunction at the nearby soybean processing plant, Fire Lt. Scott LeBrun said.

The fire department responded to the calls at about 6 p.m., but there was no fire, no one was hurt and there was no danger to the public, he said.

“They had everything under control,” LeBrun said.
