An explosion in an abandoned cinder-block storage shed on a hill above Price had police and a bomb squad scrambling, but there were no reports of injuries or other property damage.
Price Police Capt. William D. Barnes said the blast, about 4 p.m. Monday, was heard throughout north Price and neighboring Carbonville. The source of the explosion was discovered to be inside the empty 16-foot by 16-foot building owned by Emery Telcom.
The blast largely destroyed the structure, blowing out large chunks of its cement walls.
