Police are seeking the public’s assistance in discovering who set off an acid bomb Saturday night on the porch of a vacant house undergoing remodeling.

The bomb went off at about 9:15 p.m. on Saturday in 1400 block of North Morgantown, Lt. Doug Nolte said. That’s northwest of 13th and Ridge Road.

The explosive-ordnance team was called to the scene and confirmed it was a chemical-reaction bomb, Nolte said. The blast damaged concrete at the house but caused no injuries.
