Home Collapse, Fire Investigated As Hash Oil Explosion

DENVER (CBS4)– A house partially collapsed after an explosion on Monday evening. It was being investigated as a possible hash oil explosion.

The explosion happened at a home at 756 N. King Street. Neighbors say they heard a huge blast.

“All my cabinets starting coming off the walls and then I saw fire coming out of my neighbor’s house,” said neighbor Brandon McGehee.

Homes on both sides of that home have been evacuated. Investigators believe the home may be a total loss.

Denver Fire tweeted an update that no one was injured. That was later changed to reflect that two people, a man and a woman in their mid-to-late 20s, were injured and rushed to the hospital.

What caused the explosion was being investigated as a butane hash oil explosion. Fire investigators said they did find drug paraphernalia in the home.

No arrests were made Monday night.
