PUYALLUP, Wash. (AP) - Authorities in Puyallup, Washington, say a hash oil extraction operation ended in explosions that set a car afire Tuesday night.

KOMO-TV reports (https://is.gd/YvCJSM ) that Central Pierce Fire and Rescue spokesman Guy Overby says fire crews were able to quickly put the blaze out. A home suffered minor fire damage.

No injuries were reported. Police detained two people and were looking for two others.

Hash oil is typically made by packing the castoff leaves and stems of marijuana plants into a pipe and pouring highly flammable butane through it. The concoction is heated to make the potent oil more cheaply than it can be purchased in stores.
