House Explosion in North Arlington

Anonymous
Apparently a house in the 800 block of N. Edison exploded tonight while a search warrant was being executed. Bluemont area west of Ballston. Sounds scary as hell - shots were being fired as well according to reports.

I heard it was a flare gun inside the house that caused the explosion.

I saw 800 block of N Burlington for the explosion. Media staging area is on N Edison.

no way a flare gun made the house blow all the way up. Whoever was in the house had a pipe bomb or something. Or he used a gun to shoot a gas line. But I still have gas and live 1/2 mile away so maybe it's not that.

That aligns with later reports. Some are saying it was a meth lab.

This is terrifying. I am hoping everyone was out of the house and first responders are okay.

Why do people have to be thugs and criminals?

NP. This is my immediate assumption. If it's something else, we'll find out eventually. I suppose it could have been a gas leak. Such strange timing...

Drug den?

The house was barricaded for a few hours before it exploded and the guy inside was shooting flares out the window for hours. I think this is a DV/bomb thing, not meth lab.

I just watched the video. Wow. Explosion seems like an understatement.

Yes. probably about a mile away from VHC. Good time to commit a crime. I think every cop is over there.
