PHOTOS: Van full of marijuana explodes on Highway 101 in Santa Rosa


SANTA ROSA, Calif. (KRON) — First responders were already busy with storm-related emergencies on Tuesday when a van exploded and caught fire on Highway 101.

Santa Rosa Fire Department firefighters saw the flaming van on Highway 101’s onramp at 3rd Street at 9:34 a.m.

Once firefighters doused the fire, they found “several 55-gallon bags full of marijuana ‘shake’ soaked in butane,” SRFD wrote. The driver suffered burn injuries and was transported to a hospital.
