FAIRBANKS - Authorities say Wednesday's cleanup of chemicals at a home in the Chena Ridge neighborhood of Fairbanks could be explosive.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports fertilizer, battery acid, ethanol and other explosives were discovered after a 20-year-old man was injured Jan. 10 in an explosion at the home.
The Fairbanks North Star Borough said many chemicals reportedly are stored in an unsafe manner and there's a risk of another uncontrolled explosion.
Alaska state troopers have been guarding the home and the FBI and other federal agencies are helping with the investigation.
