ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -

A St. Petersburg woman was shot in the kitchen of her home -- and the bullets came from her oven.

The woman's roommate told police that he stores ammunition for his pistol inside the oven.

When the woman turned the oven on, the heat caused the bullets to explode, and she was struck, police said.

The woman is expected to be OK, and her roommate won't face any charges, police said.
