There was a stupid prank resulting in a minor explosion at the Thayer Street Starbucks last night. It was reported on CNN and NPR but information is harder to come by locally. Some details are available at the Channel 10 News website.
Emergency crews in Providence evacuated the Thayer Street Starbucks on the East Side of the city after a small explosion.
Providence Police Maj. Thomas Oates said investigators believe someone set off a homemade incendiary device in a plastic soda bottle as a prank on Thursday night.
About 20 to 30 customers were inside the Thayer Street shop when the explosion happened just before 11 p.m. No one was reported injured and Oates said the only damage was minor charring on the floor.
