CHESHIRE, Conn.—Police and fire officials say what appears to be a homemade bomb has exploded in the Cheshire High School gym, but there are no injuries or damage.
Police Lt. Chris Cote tells The Hartford Courant (http://cour.at/vROf3A) Friday night that emergency responders who went to the gym found a plastic bottle filled with chemicals. The bottle was tossed into the gym near where the girls' volleyball team was practicing just after 5:30 p.m.
Police said two coaches were taken to a hospital after complaining of skin irritation.
Cote said state police are trying to determine who made the bomb and what was used. He said he had no information about a suspect or whether a student is suspected.
Firefighters, the FBI, a State Police Bomb Squad and members of the State Police Emergency Services Unit investigated.
