Just before noon on Friday, police and firefighters were called to a condo complex at 1722 Mitchell Avenue in Tustin, Ca. after reports of an explosion in a garage.
According to Tustin police, officers found several cans of butane, 10 to 15 pounds of marijuana, and paraphernalia associated with concentrate extraction.
Tustin Police Lt. Paul Garaven said, “It looks like they were trying to concentrate some of the marijuana oils out of the leaf.”
Two people were transported to UCI Medical Center in critical condition. According to police, the two men received “considerable, but non-life threatening” injuries.
No one else was hurt in the blast. Two nearby garages were damaged.
