Ammo, weapons, tunnel found in California home

NORCO, California (AP) -- More than 1 million rounds of ammunition, a cache of weapons and a tunnel were found at a man's home after an explosive fire that forced a neighborhood evacuation, authorities said Friday.

Crews worked to fortify the tunnel, which measured 5 feet wide by 8 feet long, to ensure it was safe. It appeared to be at least 10 feet deep and led into a backyard, authorities said.

The fire Thursday afternoon at the home in Norco, about 45 miles east of Los Angeles, caused some of the ammunition to explode.

The man tried to run back into the house after firefighters arrived and had to be restrained by sheriff's deputies, Riverside County Sheriff's Deputy Juan Zamora said.

Complete Story from CNN

I can remember the good old days when joe public could dig a tunnel anywhere he wanted, or keep enough ammo and black gun powder to blow up the neighborhood and nobody really cared.

Hmmmm.......Why would you need this much firepower and an escape route if you weren't planning a large scale something-or-ruther.

Nothing like going out in a blaze of glory...ehh?
