SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say two teenage boys have been hospitalized with serious injuries after apparently experimenting with explosive materials at a Seattle home.

The Seattle Times reports ( http://bit.ly/1dXIVKL) the incident occurred at about 10:45 a.m. Sunday. Authorities received a report of a loud explosion at the house. They found the injured boys at the home and took them to Harborview Medical Center with burns and lacerations.

Seattle Fire Lt. Sue Stangl says the explosion blew out several windows in the home but did not start a fire.

Seattle police's Arson & Bomb Unit is investigating.

The police blotter says other explosive materials were found in the living room. An adult was in the house at the time but did not know what the teens were doing.
