Suspected Surrey drug house causes explosion

By Michael Mui, 24 Hours Vancouver

A drug lab is being blamed for a Surrey house explosion that caused police to evacuate surrounding residences.

Mounties were called to the 9700 block of Town Line Division at about 11:30 a.m. Monday where they found an injured man believed to have been inside the home. He required treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

“It’s believed to be some possible drug cooking that may have been going on at the time,” an RCMP spokesman said. “Right now, we’re still trying to follow-up, seeing if there’s other people associated with the house that may have fled.”

It’s unclear what charges, if any, are being recommended for the injured man.
