Crawfordville, FL - For hours the big bend bomb squad searched a home they say had unsecured pyrotechnics.

They were out there since last night.

Julie and Andy that's right, dozens of law enforcement vehicles were out here searching this home on Dan Miller Road in Crawfordville. They say they found a large amount of unsecured pyrotechnics.

They were first called here last night in regards to a suicide. They found a body and the pyrotechnics.

They say the person they found was a hobbyist of fireworks. Neighbors in the area said the same. They even told us each year he had a huge fireworks display for people around the Fourth of July.

So now authorities have left the scene saying all they found was improperly and weirdly stored fireworks.

The man who died lived here with his wife and authorities suspect no foul play in this case. There will be no arrests.
