On January 22, 2014, firefighters responded to reports of a loud explosion and fire at an apartment on Mills Tower Road in Rancho Cordova.  Law enforcement located an illegal butane honey oil extraction lab in the bathroom of a ground floor apartment.  The blast blew out a neighboring apartment’s wall and window.  With the structural damage, the apartment complex’s electrical, gas and water supply was turned off, leaving 146 tenants displaced from their homes.
