      Kirkland explosion linked to marijuana production

      KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) - Kirkland police say an explosion at an apartment complex may have been caused by malfunctioning equipment used in marijuana production.

      KIRO-TV reports two men were injured in the explosion just after 9 p.m. Wednesday.

      Kirkland police would not share more information about the explosion.

      Three people were hurt in a similar incident in August in Mount Vernon, where butane was being used to extract hash oil from marijuana.
