Two men were critically burned early Friday morning, Dec. 2, in what police are calling a honey oil extraction explosion in San Bernardino.
â€œThe two men escaped the home and they both sustained significant burns and were trying to relieve themselves of those burns in a fountain at the location,â€ San Bernardino police Lt. Mike Madden said Friday.
Both men were taken to a hospital.
Around 1:30 a.m., San Bernardino County Fire Department officials were called to a home at 2494 Duffy Street for a fire, according to Madden.
Firefighters found the home on fire and the two injured men in the fountain.
â€œThey also found numerous containers of butane bottles and large amounts of packaged marijuana,â€ Madden said.
Fire personnel called police as well as the San Bernardino County sheriffâ€™s Bomb and Arson Detail to investigate.
Initial evidence points to a possibly honey oil lab explosion, Madden said.
The incident is still under investigation.
