EDITOR'S NOTE: In our story 'Bonfire explosion leads to charges' that appeared in the May 9 edition of The Maine Edge, the second paragraph incorrectly inferred that the 19-year-old Lamoine man, who was not identified and was injured by the resulting explosion, was responsible for throwing gasoline into the fire that caused his injuries. While it was clarified in the following paragraph, where Blake Thomas, 21, of Southwest Harbor was charged by police to have thrown the gasoline that injured the 19-year-old, the previous reference caused undue confusion.

We regret the error.
