Bomb squad responds after teen blows up science experiment

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV/AP) -

Officers from the Portland police bomb squad were investigating a small blast scene Sunday outside Sitton Elementary School when a woman told them what happened.

She said her 16-year-old son blew up his science experiment with fireworks. It left a small divot in the grass.

Officers talked to the teen and determined there was no intent to damage property and no danger, so he was not charged.

Bomb technicians examined the remains of the science project and determined it didn't present any danger.
