(Shawano, WI) — The sheriff in Shawano County believes that someone threw a 55 gallon drum of diesel-fuel mix into that bonfire that exploded last weekend. Investigators yesterday updated their look into the bonfire explosion in Maple Grove that injured as many as 40 young people. Deputies say someone tossed the drum, which was about a quarter full, into the fire last Friday night. Investigators say they’ve spoken with 20-or-so people who were at the bonfire, and they are looking to speak with dozens more. The sheriff’s office says it is not looking to punish any of the high school students who were drinking at the bonfire, they say they have a ‘much larger issue’ that they need to investigate.
