Firefighters Find Marijuana Growing Operation

KSAL StaffJuly 8, 2014

A northern Kansas man’s troubles may go beyond a burned-out mobile home after firefighters reported finding an apparent marijuana-growing operation inside the structure.

The fire broke out around 1 a.m. Saturday in the Clay County town of Wakefield.

Clay County Sheriff Chuck Dunn says firefighters doused the flames and notified his office after coming across what appeared to be a marijuana operation.

Dunn says officers found more than 50 marijuana plants, along with grow lights, an automatic watering system and a ventilation system.

A 54-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of growing and possessing marijuana and other offenses.

The sheriff said the fire rekindled Saturday night and destroyed the rest of the mobile home. The cause both times has not been determined.
