Auburn, Calif.- Six adults are being criminally charged for their involvement in a drug lab that resulted in a mobile home fire last Thursday evening in Auburn.
Placer County Sheriff’s detectives were called to the scene on Friday after CDF fire officials found evidence of a drug lab at the double-wide mobile home that had burned to the ground. Detectives located the makings of a butane honey oil lab, where highly flammable butane is used to extract THC from marijuana.
The resulting product is honey oil, which is then smoked.
Charges are being filed with the Placer County District Attorney’s Office. Names of those involved will not be released as they haven’t yet been formally charged. The charges include manufacturing a controlled substance, felony child endangerment, maintaining a drug house, conspiracy and causing an unlawful fire.
Two small children were living in the trailer when the fire occurred.
