    Bad neighbor

    This guy really packed his home with explosives.

    "Officials say there is no safe way to remove all the explosives from the house, so the best way to neutralize the danger is to burn the house to the ground. They plan to evacuate 200 homes, build temporary fire-safe walls between the house and its neighbors, spray the wall and neighboring houses with fire-retardant foam, pre-heat the house so it ignites quickly, then start a fire. They plan to wait until a time after morning rush hour when the winds are calm before starting the fire. They will need to close part of nearby interstate 15 because of the house’s proximity to the highway. Gov. Schwarzenegger has declared a state of emergency for San Diego County."

    Re: Bad neighbor

    9-12 pounds (4-6 Kg) of homemade HMTD, PETN, and ETN (which authorities claim may be the largest discovery of its type on US soil…)
    13 grenades
    9 detonators
    bags of metal pieces and ball bearings
    semiautomatic weapons
    several gallons of nitric acid, sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid
    50 pounds (23 Kg) of hexamine
    books about explosives
    12 pounds of plastic explosives, 13 grenades, and 50 pounds of precursor chemicals require a house to be burned?

    I'm gonna guess that because they are homemade, the person who made them probably made a mess, resulting in chemicals soaking into parts of the home like the floor/ walls around where they worked.


    That or someone in California is just a pyro and wants to burn a house.

    The former is probably the case, but the latter is likely just as true
