SAN DIEGO — A person was seriously injured in an explosion during an apparent cannabis oil extraction operation at a South Bay home, an officer said Sunday.
Police and paramedics were called around 7:30 p.m. to a house on Leider Drive near Green Bay Street, in Egger Highlands, according to San Diego police Officer Sarah Foster.
One person was badly burned and had to be taken to a hospital, Foster said.
No identifying information was available on the person.
Wendy Felix who lives on the street says she had arrived home when she saw the swarm of police cars and ambulances.
“I got home and saw these cops around the house and I was like what the heck is happening here,” said Felix. “It’s very scary because we are neighbors and it could have affected our house.”
