Bottle bombs explode at Spokane high school

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Two soda bottles containing suspicious liquids exploded at Ferris High School Wednesday, prompting evacuations and a full search of the campus.

The first blew up near the start of the school day in a hallway. Initial reports said three faculty members were injured. The Spokane Fire Department later said just one custodian suffered a superficial skin irritation while he cleaned up the mess. He was not treated and not transported.

Hours later, a second device exploded in the school commons as emergency crews examined the liquid in the first bottle. Schools then began evacuating and organizing buses by 11:40.

Police say school officials believed the first incident was minor, hence their original decision to keep school in session. The wheels to evacuate were put in motion immediately after the second incident.

Members from the Spokane Police Department and the Spokane Fire Department responded. Officials from both departments believe these bottles contained household chemicals and say students were not in serious danger. Authorities call this more of a nuisance than anything else.

"This is finals week," Spokane Public Schools spokeswoman Terren Roloff said. "According to the police and the fire department, this is a common strategy to get out of school. Still, however, we thought it was the best thing to do to let students out so we can search for any more of those devices."

The gym was searched early and was deemed to be free of any suspicious devices. Crews will spend the remainder of the day exploring the campus. School is expected to be in session Thursday.

At this point, police have not identified any suspects.

Many students described the explosions as loud and startling. One girl told KREM 2 the sound of the explosion stopped her heart.

I do like the second bomb technique. Shows good planning.

BAN BOTTLES! And get rid of those pesky household chemicals too
just to be safe. Can't be too safe for the kids you know.

Make it illegal to carry bottled soda and Mentos at the same time.

Actually I think it was some flecks of Aluminum foil, and some other home cleaning chemicals.
yeah, foil and toilet cleaner. I know them as "Work's bomb" as in the brand of toilet cleaner Works. not sure if the brand matters.

Surprised more people don't do that. Bomb on the left goes BOOM, everybody runs to the right. Bomb on the right goes BOOM 30 seconds later, nobody knows what the fuck to do.

Midterms? What kind of a spokeswoman doesn't know the difference between midterms and finals?

Impossible. The media tells me that if kids can't get guns then they can't come up with any other method of attmepting to hurt or kill others. Any mention of bomb-making is laughed off like you're a crazy person for thinking a mentally unstable student would ever take the time to do that (pay not attention the intricate explosive boobytraps in the Aurora shooter's apartment).

I'll bet it was dry ice and water in a plastic bottle. Loud bang, but certainly isn't going to hurt or kill anybody... unless they get startled and their heart stops.
