The State Fire Marshal’s Bomb Squad, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and police in Charlestown and Westerly are investigating.

A spokesman for the state commerce secretary, who oversees the fire marshal’s office, says the explosions do not appear to be linked to terrorist activity.

The bomb squad is offering a $5,000 reward for information about the incidents that leads to an arrest and conviction of those responsible.
