Five HS Students Injured in Hot Chocolate Explosion

Share this post

Five Chicago high school students making hot chocolate suffered burns after a small explosion in their cooking class today. Chicago Fire Department Deputy District Chief Patrick Brennan says somehow the butane gas being used ignited and it may have caught fire or heated up so much that the product, which was just hot chocolate, let loose and burned some of the kids at school.
Officials say none of the injuries are serious, but hundreds of students were evacuated as a precaution.
