SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in the Phoenix suburb of Surprise say a man fatally injured in an explosion in his home was making fireworks before the blast.

Police identified the man killed Sunday evening as 38-year-old Derek Baldwin. Responding officers found him lying on his driveway.

People evacuated from houses adjacent to Baldwin’s home were allowed to return after investigators removed materials used in making fireworks.

Evidence markers in neighbors’ yards showed there debris landed.

Police say no additional information is immediately available.
