ORANGEVALE (CBS13) – Several Orangevale homes were evacuated after a man seriously injured his hand during an explosion in his garage.
Just before 7 p.m. Sunday, neighbors say they heard a loud boom and saw smoke coming from the garage of the home in the 6400 block of Trajan Drive.
Deputies say a man in his 30s was mixing chemicals in his garage when the explosion occurred. The bomb squad and FBI were called out.
The chemicals the man was using are not illegal, Sacramento County sheriff’s Sgt. Jason Ramos said, but can be deadly when mixed together.
It’s still not clear if the man will face any charges. He is recovering at UC Davis.
