SAN SIMON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A home went up in flames just a week after several home-made bombs were found inside.

Firefighters responded to the San Simon home in Cochise County just after 2 p.m., but the house was fully engulfed.

Sheriff's detectives are investigating, along with federal agents with the ATF.

It's the same home where several cans of gasoline and four improvised explosive devices were found.

Authorities went there in response to a gas alarm. Nobody was home at the time and the sheriff's department said the IEDs don't belong to the residents, but didn't give any other details.
