And the video.

Can I get one of those flare guns at Bass Pro?

No? How come? Oh yeah, the real story is not quite the same as the title.

 

A home exploded in Arlington, Virginia, on Monday night and rocked a neighborhood with a powerful blast after police responded to a report of someone firing a flare gun, authorities said.

Police received reports of a man firing a flare gun from a home on the 800 block of North Burlington Street at around 4:45 p.m.

Hours later, at around 8:30 p.m., officers were trying to execute a search warrant when the suspect allegedly fired multiple rounds, according to authorities. Then the home exploded.

Was the title simply bad writing by the Intern on Duty or just an attempt of clickbait/rating hunting?

Both would be right. Once again: They are not in the Truth business but the News business.
