    Denatured alcohol is flammable, but I don't think that it will go boom. Bombs are suppose to go boom, right?

    Emily Stallard, 37, reportedly crafted the homemade bomb in front of a child at the Walmart on East Fletcher Avenue.

    Sounds like she made a lantern, possibly as a gift for a handyman.

    If something burns and is constrained, it can create enough pressure to go "boom."

    Fumes went POP. Liquid would not have.

    I understood that as her explanation also. I guess I am sometimes smarter than I give myself credit.
