Teens' experiment leads to blast at Jersey shore

August 3, 2011

Beachwood Police Chief William Cairns says the teens mixed several ingredients, including chlorine, when the blast occurred in a home Tuesday night.

Cairns told The Star-Ledger of Newark the teens were attempting to make what they accomplished and there's no indication that it was anything more than an experiment.

The 17-year-old was treated for minor burns to his face, chest, arms and eyes. The others were not injured.

No names have been released.
