FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say an explosion that rocked a Fort Collins home was caused by the manufacturing of hash oil.

The Coloradoan reports (https://noconow.co/1sBi27Q ) firefighters were called to the blast Monday morning. The home is part of an eight-unit complex but was the only one that was damaged.

Investigators say two men were home at the time of the blast, but neither was injured. Charges are pending.

The blast sent a window pane flying more than 20 feet into the grass, and debris was strewn about outside.

Hash oil is typically made by packing the castoff leaves and stems of pot plants into a pipe and pouring highly flammable butane through it. The concoction is heated to make the potent oil for far cheaper than it can be bought in stores.
