SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say two teenage boys have been hospitalized with serious injuries after apparently experimenting with explosive materials at a Seattle home.

Detective Renee Witt says in a statement that authorities received a report of a loud explosion at the home of one of the teens just before noon Sunday.

Authorities took the injured boys to a local hospital with burns and lacerations.

Seattle fire Lt. Sue Stangl tells the Seattle Times that the explosion blew out several windows but didn't start a fire.

Seattle police's Arson & Bomb Unit is investigating.

Police say other explosive materials were found in the living room. An adult was in the home but did not know what the teens were doing. The man wasn't injured, and his relationship to the boys wasn't immediately clear.
