A man is in the hospital with severe burns after a reported explosion at a home between Sparta and Cedar Springs.

It happened late Wednesday, June 21 on Lime Lake Drive near the corner of Pine Island Drive and 17 Mile Road.

Deputies say three people were inside the home when the blast happened, and they all evacuated.

A 39-year-old man living at the home told deputies there was a secret marijuana wax operation going on inside the home before the explosion. He was taken to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids.

Kent County deputies have not released any information about possible criminal charges related to the case.
