ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

Police are investigating a chemical explosion at a home in St. Petersburg, and it appears to have been caused by a drug lab.

Investigators say chemicals used to make hashish oil were found inside the home Monday night, and the blast was so strong, it blew out an exterior wall.

Two people inside suffered burns. One of the men was taken to the hospital.

Their names have not been released.
