Deputies detonate volatile chemicals discovered in Arden apartment


Residents of a Sacramento apartment complex were able to return to their homes early Friday morning after a suspicious chemical odor prompted an evacuation.

The Sacramento Sheriff's Department investigated the complex, located at 2226 Edison Avenue near Howe Avenue, Thursday afternoon after an employee contacted them about a strange chemical odor.

Authorities initially suspected the chemical odor's source could be a meth lab operating inside an apartment unit. Because its resident was out of town, deputies obtained a search warrant to enter the apartment .

Inside the apartment, deputies found two "volatile chemical compounds" in a container that they say needed to be destroyed. As a precaution, the apartment complex was evacuated and 1,700 nearby residents were notified to remain in their homes.

Sacramento is a top 10 destination city

Sacramento is a top 10 destination city


Sacramento is a destination city? It seems so, according to U-Haul.

Sacramento made this year's cut – rising three spots from last year to be named the 10th U.S. destination city.

The rankings reflect the top 10 destinations of U-Haul one-way rentals for the previous year. There are several reasons for the growth.

The survey credits the area's "green living" initiatives, as well as affordable regional home prices compared to coastal cities.

Another reason, Sacramento's growing entertainment hub with the new downtown arena well on its way.

"We're really stoked," said new Sacramento resident Whitney Dufresne, who moved to an east Sacramento home on Thursday. "Living near a great park within walking distance to a lot of neat restaurants and things to do is exciting for sure."
