Home explosion from apparent “Spice” lab

Land O’ Lakes, Florida– Pasco Sheriff’s Vice and Narcotics detectives are investigating what appears to be a homemade “Spice”, or synthetic marijuana, lab explosion in Land O’ Lakes.

Officials report they received a call that an explosion occurred in the garage of a home on Breezy Oak Court. The call came in at 6:50 p.m., and originally reported a “water heater explosion.

However, reports indicate that further investigation revealed the homemade operation.

One man was burned in the fire and was transported to a local hospital. His injuries, according to deputies, include burns to his back and arm.

At this time, deputies say no one is under arrest, and the identity of the injured will remain confidential.

They say it is too soon to tell if the chemicals in the spice are illegal, and that further testing in a lab will determine if the operation was, in fact, using banned chemicals.
