PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Officers from the Portland police bomb squad were investigating a small blast scene Sunday outside Sitton Elementary School when a woman told them what happened.  

She said her 16-year-old son blew up his science experiment with fireworks. It left a small divot in the grass.  

Officers talked to the teen and determined there was no intent to damage property and no danger, so he was not charged.
