Another unforeseen problem with hoarding ammo. Hell fire!

We desperately need the media, the scientific community, and politicians to speak, and speak forcefully against the anti reason, anti science kooks that run this country. This thing is about to snowball out of control. The American version of the Taliban are real.

Fire officials said ammunition that was being stored in a West Knoxville home exploded after a fire erupted there Sunday morning.

A woman who lives at the home, which is located on Herron Drive off of Northshore Drive, told officials she woke up to the smell of smoke.

She managed to exit the home safely, and a neighbor called 911.

Knoxville Fire Department's Captain D.J. Corcoran said the ammunition explosion startled firefighters, especially with the Webster, New York incident still fresh on the minds of many emergency responders.

Corcoran said firefighters struggled to find a safe entry into the home, due to clutter inside. That delay allowed the fire to extend quickly into the attic area and breached the roof.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
