Fireworks found at site of San Jose garage explosion


Stored fireworks appear to be the cause of a garage explosion Sunday afternoon in southeastern San Jose, police said.

Police responded about 3:09 p.m. today to a house in the 4100 block of Moonflower Court, a few blocks east of San Felipe Road, to a report of an explosion in the garage there.

Two men were taken to a local hospital, one of them with life-threatening injuries, police Sgt. Enrique Garcia. One man was at first considered to have suffered life-threatening injuries, but Garcia said both men’s injuries are considered non-life-threatening.

The San Jose Police Department bomb unit, which discovered the fireworks in the garage, is investigating. Several nearby homes were evacuated as police continue to investigate, Garcia said.
