Florida Today-January 17, 2012-Dave Berman-According to the article an investigation is under way to determine whether chemical stored in the garage of a West Melbourne home triggered an explosion that killed a man Monday. The man suffered serious injuries to his abdomen and arm in the explosion that occurred around 1:20 p.m. in West Melbourne, Brevard County, Florida. He was pronounced dead at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, Florida. The article goes onto say that numerous hand-labeled containers of chemicals were found in the detached garage. The Brevard County Sheriffs Office Bomb Squad was called to the scene which temporarily cleared the property for safety concerns.
