Apex Technical School, maybe not a boiler explosion.

I wonder if someone forgot to close the valve on an acetylene tank.

They reported that there was a crew working on a boiler in the building next to Apex. Plumbers had been working on the boiler for the past three weeks. Well, now they're speculating about another source. Someone was using acetone for a project.
