Explosion rocks apartment complex

first_imgAZUSA – An explosion rocked a residential building when residents in an apartment set off foggers to try to fumigate their unit, but no one was hurt, it was reported today. The accident occurred around 5:45 p.m. yesterday in a four-unit building at 618 Glenfinnan Ave., Los Angeles County Fire Department Capt. David Middleton told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. The explosion is believed to have been triggered when chemicals from pesticide foggers were set off by a stove pilot light, Middleton said. No one in the building was injured, not even the two adults and five children in the unit where the blast originated, Middleton told the Tribune.

The building was deemed uninhabitable until inspectors can determine the extent of structural damage. The displaced residents were staying with friends or family, the Tribune reported.
