LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA (CBSMiami) – It looks like a giant Tiki torch, but the flare stack in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is serving a big purpose after residents had to be evacuated Friday morning due to a gas leak.
The flare stack burne off gas after residents at the Ocean Bay Club, located at 5555 N. Ocean Drive, smelled propane coming from the pool area of the building on Thursday afternoon.
“My wife actually smelled it,” said resident Ken Maglio. “My wife actually smelled it the night before. We had our window open, but didn’t think anything of it.”
