Just in case you came here looking for information about an explosion-type sound around 2:45 am – this morning we have received several e-mails asking about it, describing it as loud enough to wake them up and scare their pets. So far, checking fire and police logs, we haven’t found anything confirming what it was. Those who say they heard it are in Gatewood, Lincoln Park, and Lowman Beach areas, but at least one person thinks it could have happened some distance away, to the east. We were on watch at that time, and though we’re over south Lincoln Park, we didn’t hear it. So we’re posting this in hopes someone out there might have direct knowledge to solve the mystery.
