WILSONVILLE, OR (KPTV) -

Four "Drano bombs" were found at a Wilsonville park over the last several days.

Drano bombs are typically plastic drinking bottles filled with chemicals that will react when moved. They can explode.

Three of them were left at Memorial Park over the weekend, according to city workers, and another was found there on Monday.

One did explode, but nobody was hurt. No property was damaged, either.

The city said one had to be handled by the bomb squad, while the other two were disposed of by public works employees.

One was left in a restroom, while the other three were placed randomly throughout the park.

There are no suspects in this case, but it is a heavily used park and city workers advise you not to pick up any bottles left on the ground.
