STOCKTON (CBS13) — Sources say propane tanks and paraffin were found at the scene of an explosion and a two-alarm apartment fire in Stockton that injured at least two people.
While Stockton firefighters are investigating the exact cause of the blaze, sources say there were propane tanks and paraffin inside the rubble. Both are highly flammable, and paraffin can be used to cut hashish.
Witnesses reported hearing a domestic incident before neighbors heard the explosions.
Two to four apartments were burned by the fire.
A mother and daughter heard the explosions and worked to get neighbors away from the fire.
“We heard the explosions, they were like bombs going off,” the woman said. “We came over here and started knocking on all our neighbors’ doors over here in this other building to get them all out, because I wasn’t sure if that was going to jump, because the flames were huge and things were still exploding.”
Two people transported themselves to the hospital with unknown injuries.
