UPDATE: Butane Honey Oil Lab causes garage fire

Investigators released the cause of a garage fire in Chico.

Posted: Feb 1, 2018 10:54 PM


The fire started Wednesday afternoon just after 1:30 off Pomona Avenue in Chico.

Neighbors we spoke with said they heard several explosions when the fire started. Investigators say that's because the cause of this fire was a butane honey oil lab explosion, which is the process of taking THC off the marijuana.

A man in his thirties was burned and remains in serious condition Thursday night. Investigators say that if he survives his injuries, he will face multiple felonies for manufacturing a controlled substance, and will also be charged for starting a fire in an uninhabited dwelling.
