The Ukiah Police Department respond to a BHO Lab explosion.

In the evening of 09/09/21, at approximately 1855 hours, UPD Officers and UVFA fire personnel responded to a report of a fire and explosion of a trailer at the overnight trailer park located at 700 E. Gobbi St.

On arrival UPD Officers and Firefighters observed that a large explosion appeared to have taken place inside one of the trailers while three occupants were still inside. The occupants were one adult male and two young children. The occupants were assisted out of the trailer by bystanders as personnel arrived. The children and the adult male were observed to have significant burns over much of their body.

All injured parties were transported to AHUV and ultimately taken by air ambulance to out-of-area treatment centers.

Officers observed numerous items at the scene that were consistent with materials used in the extraction and manufacture of concentrated cannabis, commonly referred to as butane honey oil (BHO).

Investigators with the UPD, Mendocino Major Crimes Task Force and UVFA responded to assist in this investigation. At this time the investigation is ongoing and as a result the  names and potential criminal charges are being withheld.
