NUTLEY, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- State and federal authorities were investigating a small explosion Friday that damaged a car but did not injure anyone.
The blast occurred around 1:30 p.m. in a parking lot between a single-family home and an apartment building, authorities said, but neither structure sustained much damage.
Lt. Steven Rogers, a Nutley police spokesman, said federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms officials believe the bomb was a small, homemade device made up of household chemicals in a glass bottle.
Rogers said his department received several 911 calls from residents who heard the explosion and saw a plume of smoke on the east side of town. A car in the parking lot was damaged, but authorities said the explosion apparently did not occur inside the vehicle.
State police, the ATF and counterterrorism officials were all investigating.
In other news, the Mets beat the Yankees 7-6 last night.
Around here moose fart bigger than that.
"a small explosion" yet " heard the explosion and saw a plume of smoke on the east side of town."
Hmmm.......Maybe it's a very small town.
LOL. Here in central Penna, the ruttin' deer bellow louder than that Joisey popgun noise.
Hmm, Martha's hometown. What's cooking in Nutley?
Noisy in Joisey.
Dis time, it ain't da Muslims;)
Sounds like the things we made when I was a teenager although we tried to stay away from glass for the blowing up part.
Yeah. Glass Coke bottle + Jetex pellet + plastic champaign bottle stopper. Loud boom. Lots of little pieces of broken glass flying through the air. Oh, and no BATF agents swarming over the neighborhood.
The joys of growing up in early-'70s America.
it wasnt da mob eddah.
If it was goombas the car would be toast and someone would be dead.
this sounds like juvenille delinquents
Or Drano + aluminum foil. We used to use it for generating hydrogen to make our own balloons, but sealing it in a bottle would result in an explosion from the pressure.
calcium carbide and water + bottle = acetalyne at high pressure going kablooey
"Hey, wha' happened?"
"Nuttin' -- somebuddy jus' set us up da bomb..."
