Blast was brittle disaster

COOS BAY (AP) — Police, fire and ambulance crews in Coos Bay rushed to the scene of a reported explosion Wednesday morning, but police said it was just the result of a peanut brittle disaster. Police Capt. Chris Chapanar says the cook was trying out a recipe for quick brittle, but it started to burn. So he pitched the glass pot out a fifth-floor window of the Tioga Apartments. The pot shattered below. A neighbor heard it, and called it in.

Nobody was hurt, and no major damage was reported.
