AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ Two Maine college students have been charged with throwing acid bombs from the window of their dorm room.

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said Thursday that two freshman at St. Joseph College are accused of throwing three devices from their dorm's second story window. Two of the devices exploded near the hall's emergency exit.

McCausland says no one was injured. More than 100 students were in the building.

He says 18-year-old Victor Santos of Framingham, Mass., and 19-year-old Brandon Ward of Houlton, have been charged with criminal use of explosives. They're scheduled to appear before the Cumberland County Superior Court April 16.

Acid bombs are typically made combining household products in a plastic soda bottle to create a chemical reaction.
