California police ruin somebody's Fourth of July

CA police say they found 2,500 pounds of illegal fireworks stored in one man's house -- and not wussy stuff like snakes and sparklers. We're talking M-80s, brother. It reportedly took two flatbed trucks to haul all that ordnance away.

(On Friday morning, I shot a video of Olathe firefighters demonstrating how NOT to set off fireworks. I'm here to tell you -- don't screw around with M-80s. They can kill a watermelon dead in seconds.)

(On a more serious note, I also interviewed a man who lost his house a year ago because some kids were playing with bottlerockets and one landed on the roof. His family escaped, but it took them nine months to get into their new house.)
