Humboldt County deputies discovered the explosion had occurred on the 3400 block of Middlefield Lane when they learned that a local hospital had admitted a burn victim from a possible accident at a private residence. They arrived at the building to discover a lab used to extract hash oil from marijuana.
Though Quenell declined to explain the details, he did say, “This lab is still under pressure and could still possibly explode…We are attempting to get a Hazmat crew to dismantle it.”Though the lab could cause problems, Quenell said that “the fire department didn’t think it would pose a significant threat to surrounding residences.”
So far there have been no arrests, Quenell explained. “The investigation is ongoing.” He said they are interviewing the burn victim and “trying to track down other involved individuals.”
He said, “There is a possibility of potentially adding search warrants and/or arrest warrants to be served at a later date.
