In a story reminiscent of the Great Boston Molasses Flood, 10,000 gallons of cattle feed, consisting mostly of molasses, spilled out of a tank owned by Performance Plus, a business in Twin Falls, Idaho.
The molasses substance seeped into an auto repair business and an adjoining trailer park after leaking from a storage tank.
General manager of Performance Plus Matt Beed says the company has hired a backhoe contractor to clean up the molasses. Clean up could take up to two weeks.
