A man caused $10,000 in damage to his Auburn home Saturday night when hash oil stored in his refrigerator exploded, police said.
According to police:
Officers arrived at the home in the 400 block of N Street Northeast and found a woman and two men standing on the front lawn as firefighters responded to the explosion.
The homeowner told police he and a friend were sitting on the couch when the refrigerator exploded. The explosion blew the refrigerator's door off, shattered a window and damaged the kitchen's ceiling and walls.

The homeowner originally told police he didn't know what caused the explosion but later admitted to a fire investigator that he'd cooked hash oil a few days ago and placed the unwashed tubes in the fridge.
Police said the homeowner was not arrested since the homeowner was not actively cooking the hash oil when the explosion occurred. No one was injured in the explosion.
