DURHAM, N.C. -

Police say a homemade chemical bomb exploded on board a commuter bus Tuesday night, forcing the closure of a portion of West Main Street in Durham.

Police are investigating an explosion on board a Bull City Connector bus around 9:35 p.m.

Police said the bus driver reported that a man got on the bus with a jug. When he got off, the jug exploded.

Police are calling the explosion the result of a "Drano Bomb," which is a homemade chemical bomb.

No one was injured but a passenger sitting near the explosion was treated on the scene for exposure.

There was also no significant damage to the bus, police said.

No suspect information or charges have been filed until further investigation.
