Police Find Second Victim of Hash Oil Home Explosion in Sparks

Posted: Updated:
Reno Police say Sparks officers have found the second victim involved in Wednesday's home explosion on Moran Street near Wells Avenue. Police say the two suspects were making hash oil in the home which caused the explosion.

Police say the unidentified person was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center for treatment.

There's still no word yet on if the two suspects will face charges in yesterday's explosion which was the result of processing hash oil.

Authorities say there was no fire when they entered the home; firefighters say sheet rock had blown out into the attic space from the kitchen, and some curtains were burned.

Hash oil is a pure form of THC which is the ingredient found in marijuana. Police say processing hash oil is becoming a trend that's very dangerous.

Police say the second victim, a man, was also taken to UC Davis Burn Center for treatment due to third-degree burns on his chest, arms and hands.

Witnesses say two people were inside the home when the explosion happened.

Police say this is the first time authorities have been called to this specific home.

Animal Control was also called to the home. They took a dog into custody; it suffered minor injuries to its back and side, but say the animal will be okay.
