Suspicious device explodes behind Dorchester church

| June 11, 2009

A two-liter soda bottle likely filled with dry ice exploded behind a Dorchester church this afternoon, abruptly ending a school cookout and shutting down nearby streets as emergency crews ensured four similar bottles posed no threats.

At about 1:15 p.m., someone threw the five bottles into the yard behind Bethel Presbyterian Church, located at the intersection of Deckard Street and Humboldt Avenue, said District Fire Chief Jeff Whitman. One bottle burst with a loud bang, leading two police officers working at a field day for Boston Latin Academy juniors at an adjacent park to call for assistance.
