Man Burned After Suspected Drug Lab in Malibu Goes Up in Flames
Crews were mopping up early Wednesday after a suspected drug lab caught fire and exploded in Malibu, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Authorities later discovered the substance “honey oil” — which they described as a type of marijuana oil — at the residence, Sgt. Fray Lupian with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
A helicopter was used to get the person who was burned in the fire out of the home, according to a separate tweet from county fire officials.
The 25-year-old man was taken to USC Medical Center, where he would likely be arrested, according to Lupian.
A hazardous materials crew was still on the scene shortly before 2 a.m., according to the fire department.
