And now let's go to Adam Housley who is live at the scene with the very latest -- what's going on now.
Yet there's a chance that somebody surrounding apartments people might be allowed back in later on this evening that's that the idea at least but it could still be pushed into tomorrow.
The good -- so -- they had made significant -- the there's still though.
Some significant danger inside that apartment for them to step what you via live look ready to see the cherry -- to come from the -- -- the -- truck basically is still here in position has been.
All morning their technicians and the robots as you heard inside that it did give us some good information about the danger that existed and still exists.
-- -- -- someone and open up that front door whether believe police officer as a police chief asserts.
Or whether -- -- that neighbor as we heard this morning with an interview a job with Jon Scott whoever you open that door would have faced and how likely serious outcome.
-- from the booby trap that was set up to booby traps -- -- -- -- throughout that apartment together a couple of things that happened today to help alleviate some of that -- -- bomb technicians and these robots to decide it's called an assessment team.
And the first thing I want to show you is that explosion that -- -- the three we've heard so far take a listen.
-- -- -- Because we come here any moment.
But at 1015 seconds difference between that we -- warned -- three horns and allowed us of the explosions came.
That explosion right there was a water bomb we're told basically -- what they call it is a layman terms.
Com but -- basically what it there was a water explosion of water device put inside.
-- circuit board that was in the kitchen that's -- we were told the circuit board it was in the kitchen -- connected to everything.
-- over to other thirty bombs -- other more than that there -- thirty different homemade hand grenade type.
Devices inside there were also bottles there were set to explode as well as other chemicals that were set to mix together and cause fire what we talked to federal agents off camera we'll tell you.
While there was some danger with these very makeshift bombs the real danger was if this had gone off they believe the entire complex would have burned to ground because there was a lot of divisive they're allowed devices -- things to get -- in there consider devices.
And he said the setup was very intricate but the bombs themselves were very amateur.
And what they're doing right now is going through -- taking Agassi's and ATF affects you see the -- -- -- through some of those.
Which is over there the ATF's going in with the FBI they're bringing out the the piece of evidence from each one of these devices are -- They're testing it under a tent and we -- some -- video we shuttle earlier.
As -- doing that very early on before the last explosion in fact we're bringing us some of the stuff they were getting from these devices they were testing to see how explosive how dangerous.
And then they would determine what to do so what they're doing -- the going to the rest of the apartment ensuring there are no more.
Trip -- no more the circuit boards the idea what these bombs isn't too.
They explode the ordinance there it's to disarm it.
The technical part that would make it -- that makes sense so what's the go through and and really did dissect all that stuff about -- gonna bring in dump trucks and they gonna remove all the powder remove all these to these devices the bottles of of liquid.
And the the -- makeshift grenades they're gonna bring them all out.
Put them in the dump truck and drive out to the east part of town -- -- come out and then they'll either explode them on the road auto build dumped diesel Ottoman Burnham.
So everything is an apartment will come out that is one of these devices.
What's that's done didn't allow the people in that apartment specifically this apartment complex specifically to go home so that maybe a couple of days guys.
There's still was a threat specifically inside his few department back -- you guys certainly -- -- make sure all those people stay safe thank you so much we appreciate Adam Housley for.
