Los Angeles bomb technicians caused a major explosion

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles police bomb technicians made major miscalculations in June when they detonated illegal fireworks incorrectly and caused a massive explosion that shook an urban neighborhood and injured 27 people in June.

Federal investigators on Tuesday released a report that technicians overloaded an containment chamber with the illegal fireworks over the equipment’s safety rating after authorities were called to a home in South LA for a major fireworks display prior to the Fourth of July.

Fireworks are illegal to sell or possess in Los Angeles.

The illegal fireworks were found in the home of Arturo Ceja III, who in federal court last month pleaded guilty to counting the transport of explosives without a license.
