icon Dec 4 - Insane Home Explosion in Arlington Virginia
 

 
(Updated at 9:25 p.m.) A large explosion, heard throughout Arlington, has rocked the Bluemont neighborhood after a police standoff.

A duplex where a suspect was involved in an ongoing incident with police exploded in a large fireball as police, including a SWAT armored vehicle, moved in. It followed the suspect repeatedly firing a flare gun over nearby Fields Park.

Residents in the area were being instructed to shelter in place, while others were evacuated by police.

Arlington County police said the person inside the house fired shots as officers tried to enter the home, just before the explosion. A video, below, shows the explosion (the video contains strong language and disturbing imagery.)

“As officers were attempting to execute a search warrant at the residence, the suspect discharged several rounds inside the home,” said ACPD. “Subsequently, an explosion occurred at the residence and officers continue to investigate the circumstances of the explosion.”

A large fire department response is now on scene, working to extinguish the resulting blaze.

“I think it blew up the entire duplex,” one neighbor told ARLnow. “I’m sure the family next door was evacuated before it blew up but they lost their home.”

So far there’s no word on injuries, but paramedics were told to expect “multiple burn patients” after the explosion.

Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) said on social media that he is “monitoring the emergency response to a major explosion in the Bluemont neighborhood of Arlington tonight.”

“This is very, very scary, and my profound thanks go out to first responders working to secure the area and keep everyone safe,” Beyer said.

The explosion happened at 8:25 p.m., just under four hours after an initial dispatch to the house at the end of N. Burlington Street, near Fields Park, Key Elementary and Arlington Fire Station No. 2.
Initial reports suggested a man is holed up in his house, shooting a flare gun out of a window.

“At approximately 4:45 p.m., police were dispatched to the 800 block of N. Burlington Street for the report of possible shots heard,” Arlington County Police Department spokeswoman Ashley Savage told ARLnow earlier. “The preliminary investigation indicates a suspect discharged a flare gun from his residence. No property damage or injuries have been reported.”
As of around 7 p.m., the incident was still ongoing.

“Police remain on scene investigating the circumstances of the incident. As the investigation is ongoing, the suspect has not been taken into custody at this time,” Savage said. “As a precaution, the Bluemont Junction trail is closed between N. George Mason Drive and N. Burlington Street.”
A witness described the unsettling sight of repeated flares over the neighborhood.

“Looked like flares being fired off. Large red fire ball (with ‘tail’) just above tree line heading west,” the witness wrote. “Would last 15-20 secs. Several in a [matter] of 5 mins or so.”

Around 7:30 p.m., explosive ordnance disposal units from the fire department reported that they were responding to the scene.

At first blush I thought this was another gas explosion incident, but it sounds like these people might have been making/storing explosive weapons (not sure what else you would need an "explosive ordinance disposal unit" for).

Guy was very clearly schizophrenic. Incoherent ramblings and rampant paranoia

But I know the regular BXidiots bout to turn this into a conspiracy theory thread.
