Kingston police said they responded to reports of a large explosion at a quarry on Tuesday.

When they arrived, police interviewed people who said they were having a gender reveal party and felt the quarry would be a safe spot to hold the event.

NBC 10 Boston reports that residents in several neighboring towns could hear the explosion and thought it was an earthquake.

Some reported property damage. The person who purchased and detonated the explosives has turned himself into police.

He was not identified. No injuries have been reported.
