Cannabis Farm Up in Smoke


A suburban road had to be cleared of gathering crowds as firefighters battling a house fire discovered hundreds of burning cannabis plants. Emergency crews were ordered to put on breathing apparatus when it was realised the pungent fumes were ‘a little unusual’. A roadblock was set up to keep away onlookers.

Detectives were last night investigating at the semidetached house in High Wycombe, Bucks, which had been converted into a ‘farm’ for the mass production of cannabis.

It is thought the blaze, which took two hours to control on Friday night, was caused by an electrical fault in the heating equipment used to propagate the plants. No one was in the house at the time and no arrests have been made.
