A small explosion Wednesday night in the residential area of Crowne Hill in Temecula had residents calling for assistance from Temecula police.
“A plastic bottle exploded in the middle of the street,” said Deputy Lopez, with the Temecula Police Department.
Lopez, describing the container as a 2 liter soda bottle, said that a driver and residents in the 43000 block of Via Sabino heard the explosion and called police.
The explosion was reported at 8 p.m.
There were no injuries or damages reported, Lopez confirmed.
Still, officers remained at the scene to examine the container and its remaining contents to determine what caused the bottle to explode.
According to Lopez, it’s possible the incident was a prank.
Should residents find a similar, suspicious looking device in the street, Lopez said, ” Don’t mess with it. Contact police and let us take care of it.”
