The Nampa Fire Department has determined that a trailer explosion in Nampa that sent two people to a burn unit in Salt Lake City was caused by butane vapors that ignited.

The two individuals were using butane to extract THC from marijuana to make a highly concentrated product called Wax.

The butane vapors, which are highly flammable, somehow became ignited which caused an explosion.

A total of five people were inside of the trailer at the time of the explosion.

No word if charges have been filed.
