A 32-year-old man was sent to hospital with burns to his arms and face when an explosion threw him from his southwest apartment Saturday evening.

Officials say the man was making hash oil in his apartment around 6 p.m. on the 300 block of South Hampton Drive SW when the blast happened.

Fire officials say that the residents of the southwest apartment complex were lucky that the damage from the blast was contained to a single unit and that no one else was hurt.
