A man living in an apartment at 1907 Good Hope Road SE set up a bug bomb early this a.m. that blew out his windows.

Alan Etter, spokesperson for D.C. Fire and EMS, writes in an e-mail: “There was no fire. Just a pressure-release explosion from using too much of the product.”

The man received a “minor burn, but that’s about it.”

WJLA has photos from a guy who lived in the building. Looks like the explosion happened on the second floor of a four-floor complex.
