MALIBU (CBSLA.com) — Firefighters have knocked down a blaze in the Malibu hills that resulted from a possible butane hash oil lab.
L.A. County Fire was called to Rattlesnake Drive just off Encinal Canyon following a report of a blaze at a single family structure just after 6 p.m. Tuesday.
CBS2’s Kevin Takumi reports the blaze was initially thought to be a brush fire because the smoke could be seen by the L.A. Fire camp crew.
Fire officials are now reporting a suspected BHO operation was located in the building.
One burn victim has been reported.
No further information was available at press time.
