    Beer Keg and Fires Don't Mix

    1 dead in blast at New Milford party

    By Nanci G. Hutson and John Pirro

    THE NEWS-TIMES

    NEW MILFORD -- A 22-year-old local man was killed and seven others injured early Sunday morning in an explosion that erupted after a partygoer at a pig roast tossed a beer keg into a fire barrel.

    Witnesses said the 3:13 a.m. explosion that killed Sean Caselli reverberated as far as a mile or more away from the Aspetuck Ridge Road festivities.

    "It was an unbelievable explosion,'' said New Milford High School hockey coach and neighbor Robert Greco, a physician's assistant who rushed to the scene to offer assistance. "It rattled the street.''

    Caselli, who lived with his family on North Valley Road about a mile away, died after being struck by a piece of flying metal in the neck, police said.

    Police said the other victims suffered burns and shrapnel wounds that were not life-threatening. They were taken to New Milford and Danbury hospitals. Police would not release their identities.

    The party, an annual barbecue and pig roast, was held by Matt Johnson, the operator of a local tree service and the son of former Board of Education chairwoman Alexandra Thomas and her husband, Terry, who own a wilderness camp. Neighbors said Johnson has held similar gatherings in the past, and none have caused a problem. The barbecue was held in a rural area behind the house.


    I guess aerosal cans weren't good enough. They had to use something bigger.

    Some people amaze me...

    But my question is, did they catch the guy who made this genious move? It didn't say anything about him in the article...

    I don't see what's so surprising about it. They've been saying for years that alcohol kills.

    now see.. if they were smokin weed they would be too lazy to do this

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
