Garage Explosions Kills 51-year-old West Melbourne Man By SEO Admin on January 17, 2012

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. The bomb squad determined that the chemicals were owned legally and were used to make fuel for modal rockets. The man was involved in model rocketry and also repaired cars for a hobby inside his garage. A neighbor of the West Melbourne man says he felt the explosion from two houses away.
