Suspected Explosion Turns Out to be Just a Mess

Firefighters in Calgary, Alberta, responded to a call about a possible house explosion Tuesday. A driver passing through the area phoned the report in when he saw a house with a yard covered in debris. Police and paramedics also responded, and evacuated the neighborhood. The homeowner was not around, so firefighters donned hazmat suits to enter the home. There was no evidence of an explosion. It turns out that the yard always looks like that, according to neighbors. The occupant is a hoarder, and the city bylaw has a cleanup with fees and fines against the homeowner planned. -via Arbroath
