Exploding safe contained powerful firecrackers

‘The explosion at Demag Riggers and Cranes in Williston on Tuesday that killed a worker was caused by powerful fireworks stored in a safe, Williston police said.

Anthony Boisvert, 20, was using a cutting torch Tuesday to open the industrial safe when it exploded. [..]

The safe had been in an abandoned shed in Winooski since at least the mid-1990s. The safe was locked, the owner of the safe didn’t know the combination and didn’t know what was in it, Dimmick said.’
