Sheriff and police departments in Pickaway County were tracking down reports of explosions that came to their attention Wednesday night. Pickaway County Sheriff Robert Radcliff says calls started coming in at 7:30pm.
Radcliff says in one case, a person was shooting Tannerite on Circleville's east side. Tannerite is an exploding target, which is a legal substance to possess. No charges have been filed.
Then, at 8pm, sheriff deputies investigated an explosion of what appears to have been a meth lab in an abandoned apartment building on the 2500 block of North Court Street.
Sheriff Radcliff believes that someone may have been inside the building at the time of the explosion, but nobody has come forward.
