Drugs may be to blame for San Bruno fire
July 08, 2014, 05:00 AM

Narcotics manufacturing may have been the cause of a fire Monday morning that sent a 51-year-old woman to the hospital and damaged an apartment on the 400 block of Linden Avenue in San Bruno, police report.

At approximately 10:05 a.m., the San Bruno Police Department received a report of the apartment fire and found the woman suffering from burns. She was transported to the hospital, according to police.

Preliminary investigation indicates the fire may have been caused by the illegal manufacture of narcotics that occurred within the apartment. A subsequent search revealed suspected hashish oil and marijuana, along with additional materials and paraphernalia, according to police.

The San Bruno Police Department is continuing to investigate with the cooperation of the San Bruno Fire Department and the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force, according to police.

There was no damage to other apartments, according to police.
