Loud Boom in Antigo

There was a loud boom around 7:30pm tonight. Does anyone have any information on what happened? I have looked at the news but haven't found anything.


It was on facebook where some people said it was a trailer house that exploded.

The paper reported that someone at N3224 Western Avenue was burning items in a large fire pit, 6 by 8 feet in length and 6 feet deep. They used about half a gallon of gasoline, which when lit, caused a boom and sent a fireball into the air. No one was injured and no damage was caused from it.
