MAN FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE AFTER BHO FIRE
 
Posted: 2/28/2017 12:00 AM
 
A San Tan Valley man is fighting for his life tonight after he was airlifted to a local hospital with severe burns to his body.

At 9:47 Friday night Pinal County deputies, Rural Metro and Florence fire crews were called out to a structure fire at a home on the 1200 block of East Country Crossing Way in San Tan Valley for a house fire.

When crews arrived they noticed the second floor of the home on fire. There was only one person inside at the time. He was taken to the hospital with third degree burns to his head, arms and legs. He also has severe heat and smoke damage to his lungs. Right now his condition is extremely critical.

The second floor of the home is completely damaged and the fire did spread to a neighboring home. Two other homes were evacuated. Thankfully, no one else was injured.

Investigators believe the cause of the fire was due to an active BHO Lab in the residence. More than 70 cans of butane were found inside the home, along with a BHO extractor, raw marijuana and the butane honey oil itself. There was also remnants of a marijuana grow found at the home.

Detectives are working with the County Attorney on charges.
