About that Explosion in Navy Yard Last Night

“Shattered a pane of glass and left a big hole in the ice. No one was hurt.” 202 M Street, SE photo by NavyYardParking

Jean asked: “What was the explosion at about 10:35 pm, Sunday, January 1 on Capitol Hill?”

From MPD: “MPD responded to a report of a loud explosion in the park in the 200 blk of M St SE. Officers have determined a large firework was thrown onto the ice rink and subsequently went off. No injuries have been reported.

The firework damaged the ice and shattered a pane of safety glass on the edge of the rink. Officers are investigating the incident. Anyone with information or potential video of the incident is asked to call 202-727-9099 or text 50411.”

Ed. Note: Thanks to all who messaged, apologies for the delayed posted – definitely feels like an appropriate one for my return from vacation!
