Investigation continues into Idaho home explosion involving state representative
BURLEY, Idaho (AP) -- Investigators are still trying to determine what caused a room that had been converted into a gun safe to explode, injuring the wife of an Idaho lawmaker.
The Times-News reports that Amy Wood, the wife of state Rep. Fred Wood, R-Burley, is in good condition at the University of Utah's Burn and Trauma Center.
Deputy state fire marshal Ivan Hibbert says investigation reports may not be available for a few weeks. But gun expert Dan Hadley with Red's Trading Post says a gun safe room could easily hold enough ammunition and supplies to cause an explosion like the one at the Wood's Burley home.
Hadley says some gun cleaning and oiling supplies, if kept in a closed container, could spontaneously combust, or static electricity could also spark a blast.
