This is the same home that exploded into flames June 1, setting thousands of rounds of ammunition off– Police Thursday were investigating a home in the San Fernando Valley after deadly grenades were reportedly found there.

It happened in the 19000 block of Ingomar Street in Reseda, according to police.

Federal agents were at the home clearing out the backyard area for hazardous materials.

     Police have been called to the house on four separate occasions in the past two weeks because of bullets, bomb making materials and gun powder reported there.

On Thursday, the concern was over eight grenade launchers found at the home.

The house exploded into flames June 1, and thousands of rounds of ammunition went off as neighbors fled their homes

It took firefighters nearly two hours to put out the flames — they had to work from a distance because the ammunition was continuing to explode.

There were no reported injuries. But about 50 people five nearby homes were evacuated.

Two outbuildings burned, according to firefighters on scene.

"I’ve never seen a person’s property where the ground was literally just layered in bullets," a neighbor told KTLA.

The U.S. attorney’s office said Tuesday that the owner of the house, 63-year-old Ed Wyman, has been charged with storing toxic waste solvents, corroded ammunition and lead-contaminated shooting range wastes without a permit, and with knowingly putting another person in imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury.

He could face 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted on all counts.

Wyman says he’s a retired gun enthusiast, and buys and sells ammunition as a hobby.
