ROCKLIN (CBS13) – A Placer County man is under arrest after an explosion rocked a Rocklin neighborhood Sunday night.

Police were called to the 5200 block of Birdie Court just after 5:00 Sunday evening after getting several calls of an explosion.

Officers arrived to find that a large blast had happened in the backyard of a home on Birdie Court.  The explosion was so large it sent debris to the front of the home and caused a small fire which a neighbor put out.

A Roseville Fire Department Hazmat Team member and a Roseville Police Department Explosives officer helped Rocklin Police and Rocklin Fire Fighters secure the home after numerous chemicals and powders were found at the home.

After investigating, officers arrested 25-year-old Ryan Linn.  He was booked into the Placer County Jail for possession of a destructive device and unlawful explosion of a destructive device.
