YORBA LINDA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a fire at a suspected California cannabis honey-oil lab injured a man and sent fireworks shooting into the surrounding neighborhood, causing the Orange County Sheriff’s Department to deploy its bomb squad to the scene.

The Orange County Register reports Orange County firefighters responded to a call Sunday afternoon in Yorba Linda and discovered a backyard shed on fire.

Bottle rockets began shooting out of the shed and into neighboring properties, causing the Orange County Fire Authority to call a helicopter to survey the neighborhood for small spot fires that might spread.

Responders transported a 40-year-old man with injuries to a local burn center.

Investigators did not immediately know the cause of the fire but suspected the shed had been used as a lab to manufacture butane honey oil.
