BOSTON, Massachusetts — Police say a home explosion in Massachusetts that sent one person to the hospital was caused by a man experimenting with chemicals.
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans says the 28-year-old man was tinkering with the chemicals in his East Boston apartment early Sunday when they “blew up in his face.”
The explosion blew out windows in the 2nd-floor apartment and forced an evacuation of the building.
Police say the man that has been hospitalized with 2nd-degree burns is in critical, but stable condition.
Several weapons and live ammunition were found in the man’s home, according to Evans, but police do not believe the explosion is linked to terrorism.
Evans says the police department is working with the FBI to determine which charges the man will face.
