Flare Gun Ignites Massive House Explosion: Shocking Footage Reveals Moment of Destruction

Published on

On Monday night, a massive house explosion was captured on video after reports that a man had fired a flare gun in the home. The explosion sent pieces of the house flying, shook streets, and set off car alarms in the surrounding area. As the flaming debris falls, you can hear people near the person who is taking the video shouting in shock.

Watch:

The officers were already at the scene of the explosion and had posted a warning on social media about a disturbance that was occurring in the area:

Arlington, Virginia, was the scene of a house explosion Monday night, just minutes after police had posted on social media that a suspect was setting off a flare-gun inside a residence.

Arlington County Police Department posted on X shortly after 8:15 p.m. that officers were at the scene of a flare gun discharge from a home in the 800 Block of North Burlington Street.

The police had warned the public to avoid this area.

After the explosion, they posted again:

The blast did not cause any injuries. The police were talking to the suspect inside the house, and trying to get him out.

WTOP received confirmation from a listener that she lived in the neighborhood and had seen police and other armed officials surrounding the suspect’s home, trying to get him to leave.

“And they are talking to him.” The house blew up the next thing that you know. The entire side of a duplex has collapsed. I’m not sure about the other half. I hope that the people living next door escaped. “They’re now (officials), chasing us out of the street, with all the firetrucks and everything,” she said.

Expect major police and fire responses:

Arlington Fire & EMS announced on X their units were at the scene of a “structure fire” at the same location, and that they should expect a large fire and police response.

Here’s an up-close view of the destruction:

Tweet continues:

Witnesses report a large, yellow flash that was followed by an enormous boom. This shook multiple homes and buildings. Officials report that it was an explosion in a home, with reports of heavy flames and thick smoke plumes billowing out of a building surrounded by trees.
