Blowing up cars

Since the newspaper I work for doesn't use my photos, I thought I'd share these from an assignment I worked Wednesday. The FBI is leading training in explosives and other weapons of mass destruction this week at a salvage lot in Cocoa full of Cash for Clunkers vehicles. Above, shards of glass fly as FBI agents blow up a Pontiac so their trainees can process the scene. This photo gallery includes others from staff photographer Christina Stuart.

This was a Saturn.

The roof of a Cadillac goes flying.

This car caught on fire, and firefighters extinguished it within minutes.

What's left of the Saturn.

Sheriff's investigators sift through evidence, trying to find out what explosive was used.

This piece of plastic was determined to be junk, not evidence.
