**Warning this video can be hard to watch**

The New Mexico Environment Department released the video, from an incident in June of last year, Tuesday.

In it you can see workers apparently using butane to extract THC from marijuana to make cannabis oil.

When suddenly the room bursts into flames!

One worker struggles to open a nearby door and escape, and another is seen seconds later running and jumping through the flames to get out.

Both men suffered third-degree burns in the explosion.

The Santa Fe-based dispensary is one of dozens licensed in the state.

It received a fine from OSHA for more than $13,000 as a result of the blast.
