The NYPD Bomb Squad and the FBI are investigating a Queens home containing suspected “bomb making” materials, police sources said.
Authorities said they were tipped off to the potential explosives after the home across from Astoria Park on 19th Street erupted in flames about 2 p.m. Tuesday.
Police set up a large perimeter around the home after discovering what was described by police sources as three bags of “bomb making” material, possibly ammonium nitrate. Wick cords, used for fuses, were also found, sources said.
“Due to a police emergency please avoid Astoria Park and the surrounding streets,” NYPD’s 114th Precinct tweeted Tuesday night.
One person inside the home was injured during the fire, which started on the first-floor and was extinguished within 30 minutes, the FDNY said.
