The lab was discovered after several explosions and a fire at a mobile home. When crews arrived on scene, a large number of butane cylinders and a large amount of marijuana was found. Investigators say it was all evidence of a conversion lab.

Deputies took more than 180 pound of marijuana, conversion cylinders, and several hundred butane cylinders.
