Bubbles fill a Idaho city
According to the Washington Post bubbles spewed from a three-block stretch on the city's east side Thursday after American Linen accidentally released detergent into the municipal sewer lines. The combination of gravity and churning water whipped the soap into sudsy foam.
According to Myfoxtwincities Officials said that the company had a malfunction, in its automated detergent loading device, releasing 167 gallons of detergent. Crews worked during the day to disperse of suds before they reached the treatment facility, then used soft-spray hoses and yard blowers to reduce foam levels.
According CBSnews a witness said "It looked like the texture of something you'd see come out of your washing machine if you overloaded it," said Sue Foster, a student teacher.
