Brothers blow up house while celebrating lottery win with drugs

Authorities say two brothers accidentally blew up their house after celebrating a $75,000 winning lottery ticket by purchasing marijuana and meth.

Wichita police Sgt. Bruce Watts says one of the brothers was taken to a hospital and the other to jail after Friday's explosion. The Wichita Eagle reports that the injured 27-year-old brother is in serious but stable condition with second-degree burns on his hands, arms and chest.

Watts says the explosion happened after one of the brothers went to the kitchen to refuel the butane torches they planned to use to light their bongs. The brother emptied a couple large cans of butane lighter fluid, leaking butane into the air.

4. Uhhm, that sounds like a very unlikely story about the butane

I seriously doubt they were using butane to light bongs.

These boys were gonna make hash oil.

11. Why link to Faux?

Why give 'em the clicks? Doesn't the local paper or teevee station have it?

12. With a story as unigue and meaningful as this one, I thought it was worth it.

But be reassured I won't do it very often.

My early search yielded only Fox and sites re-posting the Fox story.
