Ron Russell Middle School in northeast Portland was evacuated Tuesday morning after a bottle bomb went off in a restroom on the second floor. Police Sergeant Pete Simpson says bottle bombs contain dry ice and other chemicals. They can explode; but they can also melt. Three students and a janitor were treated for exposure to the chemicals. The second floor was evacuated while the fumes were cleared out. School police are investigating. There have been no arrests.
