Drug Lab Explodes in Puna Sending Man to Hospital

Hawaiʻi Island police are investigating a drug-related explosion that sent a man to the hospital with severe injuries.

At 8:16 p.m. Saturday (December 28), police responded to a report of a loud explosion at a home on 17th Street in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision in Puna. When officers arrived, Fire Department personnel were already at the scene, where smoke was present but not flames.

The blast had knocked out windows, melted plumbing fixtures and blown the doors off cabinets.

The sole occupant, a 30-year-old Keaʻau man, was initially taken to the Hawaiian Paradise Park fire station by private vehicle. He was then taken by ambulance to Hilo Medical Center with third-degree burns. He was later transferred to a hospital on Oahu.

Detectives from the Area I Vice Section are continuing the investigation.

Police ask anyone with information about any butane honey oil lab to call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.
