Burning the Escondido Bomb House

The Escondido Bomb House was burned on December 9, 2010. This house was rented by a mysterious man who amassed large amounts of bomb-making materials. It was determined that the disposal of these materials would best be accomplished by destroying them in place. Bomb disposal experts determined that it would be too risky to dispose of these materials by removing them from the location. The entire structure was likely too contaminated with chemicals to warrant the cost of cleanup.

The location was appropriate to allow the structure to be burned. Many precautions were taken, including large evacuations, street closures, and fire exposure measures. The burn resulted in several explosions, including many rounds of ammunition.

Not any indication if there were any guns found to go with the ammo.

More information can be found from many sources, including the North County Times.
