TUCUMCARI -- Officials in Tucumcari say it was a student that caused a massive response today at the high school.

This morning a student in a welding class in the ag shop put some acetyline in a container and lit it causing a loud pop.

The school says several rumors were started, that there was a pipe bomb on campus.

They say that wasn't true and no students were ever in any danger.
