Marijuana Extraction Explosion in Lake City, No Injuries but Plenty of Damage

One man’s house  will definitely need some repair work done after a refrigerator explosion last night in Lake City.  Fortunately, there were no injuries.

Seattle Police and Seattle Fire responded to a report of an explosion in the 3000 Block of NE 135th Street last night around 9:30 pm.    When officers arrived, they contacted the 37-year-old resident, who told investigators that his refrigerator had exploded.  Officers suspected that this occurred while he had been extracting the THC from marijuana, and the man confirmed that.  The explosion broke four windows and moved the back wall of the house three inches.  Detectives from the Arson/Bomb Squad (ABS) responded and took over the investigation.  This remains an active investigation.
