ABERDEEN, Wash. (AP) -- A man, woman and child suffered burns when a homemade explosive went off unexpectedly Monday afternoon outside a home in Aberdeen.
Police told KBKW (http://kbkw.com/) a 26-year-old man had poured out some black powder and lit it to cause a flash and smoke. When he attempted it again, it exploded.
The man was treated for burns to a hand and leg. His 21-year-old girlfriend and 4-year-old niece received more-serious burns and were transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where they are reported in satisfactory condition.
