Small homemade explosive device causes minimal damage at Wisconsin Planned Parenthood clinic
GRAND CHUTE, Wis. (AP) ' Officials say a small homemade explosive device caused a fire and minimal damage at a Planned Parenthood clinic in eastern Wisconsin.
Authorities say someone placed the device on an outside window sill about 7:40 p.m. Sunday at the clinic in Grand Chute.
Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin CEO Teri Huyck (HEYEK) says in a statement that there was minimal damage to an exam room and that the clinic will reopen Tuesday. No one was in the building at the time.
A small fire broke out when the device exploded, but quickly burned itself out. Police have no suspects in custody and did not immediately comment on a possible motive.
The Grand Chute Fire Department responded to the clinic's fire alarm and alerted police after finding the device.
