MEDFORD, Ore. — A hash oil explosion has sent a man to the hospital and destroyed a house and garage.
The Mail Tribune reported the explosions and fire Thursday also damaged two nearby homes.
Greg Kleinberg of Medford Fire-Rescue says there were a couple hundred containers of butane in the garage.
Marijuana plants were found in a room.
Butane is used in the process of extracting hash oil from marijuana.
Medford police Lt. Kevin Walruff said illegally producing hash oil is a felony in Oregon.
Property records say Jackson County Circuit Judge Ron Grensky owns the property along with some others in Medford.
He lives in Jacksonville and could not be reached for comment.
