It’s a boy!
An explosion that rattled homes within a 20-mile radius Tuesday night is being blamed on a gender reveal celebration at a Kingston quarry that police say involved more than a pound of Tannerite and blue chalk.
Many residents in communities across southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts reported hearing the explosion just after 7 p.m.
No injuries were reported in the quarry at Torromeo Industries on Dorre Road. Kingston Police Chief Donald Briggs Jr. said police are looking for those involved.
“Obviously, depending on the amount (of explosives) they were using, it could be extremely dangerous,” Briggs said Wednesday.
Gender reveal party accidents — some deadly — have made headlines as they’ve grown in popularity among expectant parents over the past decade.
Last year, a device from a gender reveal celebration sparked a massive wildfire in California that resulted in a firefighter’s death.
