An explosion in the bedroom of a home in the 1000 block of Stone Valley Road in Alamo touched off a full-scale investigation Friday – leading to the closure of Stone Valley Road and a HazMat investigation of the premises.
Firefighters from neighboring San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District Station 32 responded quickly after neighbors said the explosion rocked their homes at approximately 6:27 p.m. A search of the residence reportedly determined that the blast had blown windows of a bedroom outward.
The area was quickly sealed off by California Highway Patrol officers and a queue of county and local investigators began to arrive, some donning HazMat suits. Neighborhood rumors that containers of chemicals were found inside the residence could not be confirmed, though the home was sealed off for more than three hours Friday night. A PG&E crew was also on scene.
Neighbors contacting this site said the residence has been the source of many neighborhood complaints on a variety of issues for approximately ten years, all with little or no remedy despite the sympathetic ear of responding deputies and other county officials.
There were no immediate reports of anyone being injured in the blast.
