MAN CRITICALLY BURNED IN MAGNOLIA HOME EXPLOSION

Just before 10 pm, an explosion was reported on Timberloch Trail in the Timberloch Estates Subdivision in the Magnolia area. Montgomery County Deputies arrived at the scene and after entering the home found a white male critically burned with second- and third-degree burns. They removed the male and on exiting the home observed some large what appeared to be batteries inside the home. Concerned that it could be possibly bomb making materials they contacted the Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office Bomb Unit. Magnolia Fire responded as did Woodlands Hazmat and Needham Hazmat. The male was transported by MCHD to Hermann Hospital Burn Unit in Houston. After interviews, it appears the male was trying to decontaminate himself of bugs by spraying brake cleaner fluid over his entire body. The male was attempting to use a vacuum to remove the bugs and during the power-up process it is believed the vacuum sparked causing him and the atmosphere in the structure to ignite. Through the rapid expansion of vapors, the resulting explosion caused major damage inside the residence. Investigators found numerous empty containers of brake cleaner fluid scattered throughout the home. The male is currently in critical condition and unconscious and will be interviewed once he is awake. There were reports of a female also at the location, but she was never found. A search of the area by firefighters and law enforcement did not locate her either.
