What A Flash Bang Device
looks like when detonated

A house was set on fire on Tuesday, June 12, 2001 when police attempted to serve a no-knock drug warrant that issued based on information provided by a confidential informant.  No drugs were found did any of the residents have reason to be suspected of drug dealing.

Officers say the fire started when they set off a device called a flash-bang meant to disorient the people inside. Police say the device threw off a spark that caught some sound-proof audio tiles on fire.

The incident, which occurred in a predominantly black neighborhood stirred strong protest from citizens who live in the neighborhood.   But protesters outside police headquarters yesterday say the fire never should have happened because police didn't find any drugs, nor did they arrest any suspects. Craig Johnson is the owner of the home and says he lost everything and wants to be compensated. "I think they made a big foul up by infringing on our rights," said an angry Johnson.

A low key St. Petersburg Police Department says the use of the distraction device is under review, but officers say they've used flash-bangs for many years and never had a problem. Flash bangs, which have caused numerous house fires across the country, reach temperatures of 4,500-degrees and spew gas and flames when ignited. They can be fatal if fired directly at someone.
