WATCH: Bomb Squad Lets Home Filled With Fireworks Burn

A fire-damaged suburban Connecticut home that firefighters found filled with dangerous fireworks is set to be burned down Thursday after officials decided it was the best way to dispose of the explosives.

Officials opted to set the Bruce Drive home ablaze and let the haul of commercial-grade fireworks explode during a “controlled burn” after a “significant” amount of the ordinance were found in the garage and reportedly wired to a control panel during a fire Saturday.

Deputy Police Chief Kevin Stratton told the Shelton Herald that it was just easier to burn the home and let the fireworks go off, especially since they are not sure exactly how much explosive material is inside. (From YouTube video description)
