PUYALLUP, Wash. -- Investigators say a man who was making bombs in his house blew himself up inside early Tuesday morning, blasting the roof off of his home and causing the structure to burn to the ground.

When deputies arrived at the house near the intersection of 160th Street and 70th Avenue East, the man ran upstairs with a duffel bag full of explosives and other bomb making materials...the man began playing music loudly, and deputies backed away from the house.

Within moments of the deputies' exit around midnight, the top floor of the house exploded.
...the explosion...took the whole top floor off of the residence and engulfed the house in flames...
...the bombs the man used were wrapped with glass, marbles and nails.

Thank God the deputies backed away just in time.
