PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Authorities say explosives were detonated inside portable toilets in Rhode Island.
WPRI-TV reports that the explosives were detonated inside two portable toilets, one in Charlestown and one in Westerly, on Saturday.
No injuries were reported.
The State Fire Marshal’s Bomb Squad, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and police in Charlestown and Westerly are investigating.
A spokesman for the state commerce secretary, who oversees the fire marshal’s office, says the explosions do not appear to be linked to terrorist activity.
The bomb squad is offering a $5,000 reward for information about the incidents that leads to an arrest and conviction of those responsible.
