Suspect in San Francisco Sunset home explosion apprehended; allegations include manslaughter and drug manufacture

A 53-year-old man was detained by San Francisco police on Friday night in connection with the horrific Sunset District home explosion and fire that claimed one woman's life and injured another.

According to the California Department of Cannabis Control, the fatal blast suspect lacked a manufacturing license.

One woman, the suspect's wife, who the neighbors claim was crippled, perished in the blaze. The two kids were reportedly not home at the time, according to neighbors.

The power of the explosion that destroyed the suspect's garage door on Thursday can be seen on security camera footage from a nearby house. The explosion occurred in the 1700 block of 22nd Avenue in San Francisco.

The body of a woman was pulled from the debris. A second individual was seriously hurt and brought to the hospital. Both have not been named.

A police evidence crew driving the cylinders was making a turn on Junipero Serra when said they heard a hissing sound.

Hafner added that anonymous tips can be submitted on the Department of Cannabis Control website and delivered to their office.

The two kids who resided in the suspect's home will be looked after and supported, according to the police and Child Protective Services.
