Press: Idaho Men Try to Start Fire With Explosives

Posted By on Sun, Dec 30, 2012 at 9:43 AM

It's a fair assumption that a trio of Idaho men didn't take an IQ test before trying to start a fire using explosives.

This morning's Coeur d'Alene Press reports that 20-year-old Dylan Dodd and 23-year-old Alex Encinas were both rushed to the Kootenai Medical Center after they, and a third man, tried to start a fire after spending most of the day on Dec. 28 at the Hayden Creek shooting pit.

But they made the near fatal mistake of using some of their leftover exploding target material as an accelerant.

"When Dodd neared the fire with the material, which was contained in a bag, the material exploded, severely injuring Dodd's right hand. Encinas also suffered lower body injuries," according to a release from the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office.
