ADELANTO (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say an explosion at home in San Bernardino County sent one man to the hospital with second-degree burns, and led to the arrest of a second man.

The incident unfolded Friday evening at a home in the 10500 block of Teakwood Way in Adelanto.

It was there that authorities say deputies were dispatched following a report of an explosion and fire.

When they arrived, they say a majority of the home had been destroyed – the result of a THC extraction lab, authorities said.

One of the suspects – identified as Chance Jones – sustained second-degree burns. He was taken to a trauma center. The second suspect – identified as Clarence Jones – was arrested and subsequently booked.

Officials said their investigation is ongoing.

No further information was immediately available.
