‘Drug Manufacturing’ Explosion in Cutten
Humboldt Bay Fire was sent to a report of an explosion near the 2300 block of Redwood Street and 3900 block of Cedar Street in Cutten at 10:08 a.m today.
“It was an explosion in a 20 by 20 outbuilding,” Humboldt Bay Fire battalion chief Kent Hulbert said. “It appears that there was some sort of drug manufacturing going on.”
Hulbert said witnesses reported seeing someone running away from the explosion after it happened, but they have been unable to locate the suspect. There were “no reported injuries,” but Hulbert said he suspects the person running away may have been injured. When Humboldt Bay Fire arrived they found minimal smoke and some flames.
Hulbert said, “It’s under investigation.”
