Police Chief Gary MacNamara said Tuesday that there is no indication that a Bronson Road man who stored numerous containers of chemicals and made explosive devices at his residence did not intend to harm anyone.

MacNamara also said the man, who police have not identified, legally owned the more than 250 firearms found in the house at 1625 Bronson Road.

Bronson Road was closed from Tuesday evening into Thursday as authorities from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the FBI, the state Department of Environmental Protection, the State Police Bomb Squad, and Fairfield firefighters and police tried to determine what was inside the house, and if the area was safe.

MacNamara said during a Wednesday press conference that the man had made explosive devices, described as larger versions of M80 firecrackers, which State Police ordnance disposal technicians detonated at a Sherwood Island.

Firefighters and DEEP officials are scheduled to meet at the house today as removal of the chemicals continues.
