Authorities have detained a man suspected of setting off an explosion at a Tustin home Wednesday morning.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad was sent to the 12700 block of Newport Avenue after reports of a loud explosion just before 9 a.m., spokeswoman Carrie Braun said. Four condominiums in the area were evacuated.
Officials found evidence that an explosive device had been set off, damaging a small area in the backyard of one of the condominiums, Braun said.
Authorities think there may be another explosive device but are waiting for a search warrant before entering the home and continuing their investigation.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
