Radio KBwD is on the air: the "Bomb House" edition

As many of you are aware, one George Djura Jakubec decided to turn his San Diego suburb home in Escondido into a bomb-making facility. After a gardener for the property nearly got his foot blown off while working in the backyard of the residence, authorities discovered an explosive-laden house that was far too dangerous to be neutralized by man or machine. The best course of action, it was determined, was to simply burn the house down.

Here's video of the first 6 or 7 minutes of the burn which took place yesterday morning.

Frankly, we were a little disappointed in the burn. We were hoping for some Jerry Bruckheimer-style theatrics but had to settle for a smores roast.

At any rate, and not to make light of the tragedy that has befell north San Diego county and in particular the I-15 corridor over the last few years, we are left wondering just what are they putting in the water up there?

Please go over to Left Coast Rebel who has more video of the event along with some more info regarding the same and from whom we swiped the video above.

As for our musical feature... it's gotta be, right?

Gee do ya think they got a waver from the EPA for that burn?

Price, that's a good question. There were between 40 and 50 fed, state and local agencies working together on this so I'm assuming the EPA had to sign off on this at some point.

The weather cooperated and everybody, at this point, seems please with the results.

At a dog training facility, the owners forgot to "turn" the dynamite in the storage unit. They cleared the neighborhood and the 60 freeway. The insured was a client of mine and I was requested to observe. Mrs. Dawg saw my truck at the observation point on TV that day.

Story here:

No EPA warnings or AQMD notifications were pulled.

You picking on my town? Good thing you didn't hear about the OTHER unrelated bomber arrested last week too. Super glad my mom has been taking her daily morning walk past both houses for years.
