Two small blasts probed in Oregon

ALOHA, Ore. — Authorities say two small, homemade explosive devices detonated in the Aloha area with one leaving a woman with minor injuries and the other damaging a mailbox.

The Washington County Sheriff’s office says that the first occurred Saturday afternoon at a portable toilet at the International School of Beaverton. A 40-year-old Spokane woman injured her head and was treated at a hospital and released.

The areas around the school and a park were evacuated and searched but no other devices were found.

The office says that a little while after the first blast, another small device went off at a home about a quarter-mile away and caused minor damage to a mail box.

There was no word of any suspects or a motive. The office says it’s investigating.
