All four 18 year olds were charged with 10 counts each of setting off incendiary devices.

“They can cause injury to somebody just if the chemicals get on somebody, much less the fragmentation of the shrapnel damage that can be caused,” Riverton Unified Fire Authority Capt. Clint Mecham told KUTV.

Gill is the current "Miss Riverton."
