Two men trying to extract hash oil from marijuana with butane were sent to the hospital, and jail, after an explosion tore off a porch and rocked a nearby police car.

The men were in the basement of a home (where a woman and child resided) working with butane when one man decided to have a cigarette after their work was complete and caused an explosion.

They were seriously burned on their arms and legs, the walls of the home were blown away from their foundation, the porch blew off, and the force rocked a nearby patrol vehicle.

They are charged with reckless endangerment and also illegal marijuana production since they were trying to produce a marijuana product without a license to do so.
