Huntington Beach police were investigating Wednesday the explosion of two dry-ice bombs.

The first occurred about 8:46 p.m. Tuesday on the front porch of a house on the 16700 block of Wanderer Lane, according to a police report.

A few minutes later, another dry-ice bomb exploded on the porch area of a home on the 17600 block of nearby Wrightwood Lane, according to the report.

No one was injured in either incident. Investigators have not determined whether they were related.

According to the report, dry-ice bombs are easy to make, using dry ice, water and a plastic bottle. They explode within minutes and are highly unpredictable.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Huntington Beach police at (714) 960-8811.
