Small explosion reported for possible manufacturing of cannabis oil

MONROE, Mich. —A small home explosion may have been caused by a resident making cannabis oil, according to the Monroe Police Department. 

Emergency crews responded to a residence in the 700 block of East Elm Avenue at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday after a person reported a heater caught on fire, according a news release. 

A resident suffered not life-threatening injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. Police did not release the name of the person.

A preliminary investigation revealed a small explosion had occurred. 

Evidence suggested the resident may have been making cannabis oil with butane, which may have caused the explosion, police said. Two unknown powdery substances and a narcotic were also located. 

There was minor damage to the home. Anyone with information should contact Monroe Police Department Det. Lt. Derek Lindsay at 734-243-7513.
