MANTECA - Police are investigating an explosion that seriously injured several high school aged teens at a house party late Friday night.

Police received the call at about 11:15pm at a home on the 300 block of Santiago Way. When police arrived, several of the injured persons had already been taken to the nearby Kaiser Hospital on Yosemite Avenue.

According to officials at the scene, the early investigation suggests that about 50 or so teens were in the backyard of the home when someone tossed an object over the back fence. Authorities would only describe the object as an explosive device.

The object exploded and injured several of the party-goers. Police described one of the injuries as being to the face, with the possibility of that person losing an eye. That teen was transported to the Oakland Children's Hospital according to officials.

Police say another teen suffered blast wounds to the hand, torso and upper thigh. The wounds were said to look like burn marks and cuts in spotted areas.

Four victims were found at the hospitals, but a witness at the scene said there could be as many as ten. Authorities also believe there are more victims who are afraid to come forward.

Police say there were no altercations or reports of trouble at the home prior to the explosion.

Explosive teams responded to the home to investigate the scene. Authorities believe the suspect fled quickly in a vehicle and are looking into the possibility that this may have been a prank gone bad.
