Man Injured In Possible Meth Lab Explosion In Torrance

TORRANCE (CBS) — A man was injured Thursday in an explosion at a mobile home park in Torrance that involved a possible methamphetamine lab, police said.

The blast was reported about 7:45 a.m. in the 1900 block of Artesia Boulevard.

Residents of the community said the explosion shook the mobile home park.

Evidence at the site led investigators to believe it was the result of methamphetamine manufacturing, Torrance police Lt. Martin Vukotic said.

A 52-year-old man lived in the mobile home.

“When firefighters did arrive, he was outside the home . . . but he had some serious burn injuries to the upper half of his body . . . potentially life threatening,” said Cpt. Steve Deuel.

He was transported to a hospital for treatment, according to officials.

    I know the man involved and I can tell you without a doubt that this wasn’t a meth lab. I also know he’s a hard working man who has children and grandchildren who could be reading your rude comments. The the investigators have this one dead wrong on their first instincts.
