Here’s another reason not to play with firecrackers:
Authorities answered a call last week that was initially described as a bomb threat at Cedar Shoals High School in Athens.
But it ended up being just a firecracker.
Police and fire personnel responded at 2:42 p.m. on May 9, and were told by witnesses that the “sound of a boom” was heard and a “large amount of smoke” was seen in a bathroom area.
According to the Athens-Clarke County Police, the school was evacuated briefly until the source was discovered.
The firecracker damaged one of the bathroom stalls.
