The site consists of three abandoned drums located in an alley behind ABM Janitorial Supplies at 3179 Minnesota Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri, in an area of mixed residential and commercial use. Two schools are located within a mile of the site. The abandoned containers were initially reported to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) Environmental Services Program by an unknown source. MDNR investigated the site on February 7, 2007. Samples results confirmed the drums contain flammable liquids. The drums are located in an unsecured location and are accessible to children and vandals.
