From afar: It was probably a secret terrorist plot, foloowed by Obama's black helicopters that are coming to dispatch troops to take all the guns out of the hands of the patriotic Napa citizens. I think I read that on the InterNet. Just kidding-wink, wink.

The news had a story on dry ice bombs in Fairfield. Dry ice bombs can be very loud

I live south of Redwood off Westview and I heard it. Sounded like ? an exploding microwave. (in other words, no idea) The crime map @crimereports.com says it was in the 100 block of Garth St.

I am going out on a limb here…Maybe, just maybe, there is an active investigation in progress and they do not want to release any more information on the outside chance it compromises the investigation, or the responsible individual can actually read.

City- if that was the case why would they use a 'noisy helicopter'? and why would it be legal to listen to police/fire/rescue on the scanner? It's not some 'secret under ground' thing people find by accident. You can even go to an electronics store and buy scanners, that will only scan 'legal' channels in your state.

City- I may have also misunderstood your post...apology offered. I thought you were responding to getting reals post. Sorry.

I live off of Wine Country Avenue and I was woken up from hearing the explosion. I left my windows open since it was still warm inside my room, and I woke up to 2 loud bang noises, which I had thought were possibly gun shots. I looked at my clock and it said 3:32am. Guess I wasn't dreaming after all...

I was awake at the time, but did not hear it, then again, I'm on the other side of town. How loud was it anyway? I hear loud noises randomly all the time, so unless they are really close and I notice something else is off, like the electricity goes out or something, I don't investigate further.
