Arrest made in Fairbanks neighborhood explosion

Alaska State Troopers have made an arrest in an explosion that rocked more than a dozen homes in a neighborhood outside Fairbanks.

Troopers and Fairbanks International Airport police on Wednesday charged 54-year-old Guy Christopher Mannino with criminal mischief for setting off the explosion on Chena Ridge west of the city.

Troopers say no particular property was targeted.

The blast late Saturday afternoon at a makeshift shooting range directly affected 12 homes. Trooper say at least six received structural damage such as blown out windows, soffits, vents or other parts.

Other homes saw items break as they fell off shelves and walls.
