Around 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Pima County Sheriffs and Northwest Fire responded to a house on the 6700 block of North Galaxy Road after receiving a call about an explosion.

According to Pima County Sheriff’s Department’s Public Information Officer Deputy Tom Peine, dispatch received a call of a woman saying there was an explosion in the garage of her house and then the line was disconnected.

The man was attempting to make self-exploding targets when the materials made a small explosion causing a little damage to his garage and a few minimal injuries to himself.

The department got a search warrant to collect evidence.

“The homeowner advised there were some other mixed chemicals that we now have to treat as unstable,” Penie said. “And they are going to go in with a robot and clear whatever kinds of stuff is still in there.”

Charges for the man are pending as the investigation continues.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
