Exploding fridge airs cannabis

Authorities say an exploding refrigerator led them to a marijuana-growing operation in San Diego.

City News Service has reported the fridge exploded and caused a fire late last week at a home in the Encanto neighbourhood.

It took firefighters about 30 minutes to douse the fire. There were no injuries.

However, police said authorities later discovered marijuana growing at the house and a quantity of flammable hash oil, which apparently caused the explosion.

Three people were held for questioning.
