What’s being reported as an acid bomb was set off near the intersection of Bacon and Brighton in Ocean Beach over night on Wednesday, Oct. 26th. The fiery liquid was burning in a trash can, and a street was closed as authorities dealt with the mess.
One official was quoted by news as saying that there’s been “a rash” of such incidents” in OB recently.
One local TV station reported:
Fire investigators say this kind of bomb is extremely dangerous and this is just the latest in a string of explosions in the Ocean Beach area.
What? Explosives going off in OB? No way, Jose! “A string of explosives” in Ocean Beach? Loud noises at the beach – unheard of!
In the comments of the news report, one commenter named OBehave said:
I called 911. It was a thunderous boom, definitely not a firecracker. The weekly rental place nearby has tweakers setting off firecrackers at all hours not infrequently, including the night before this.
Another commenter said “LSD was everywhere.”
Have you heard any of these explosives? Has there been a “string of explosives”? Let us know.
