Lottery winning brothers 'accidently' blow up house
Two brothers who celebrated a $75,000 winning lottery ticket by buying marijuana and meth then accidentally blew up their house.
The explosion sent one of the brothers to hospital with second-degree burns on his hands, arms and chest.
The other brother was sent to jail, The Wichita Eagle reports.
The brothers were in a Wichita house on Friday night when one went to the kitchen to refuel the butane torches they planned to use to light their bongs. He emptied two large cans of butane lighter fluid, leaking butane into the air.
“The butane vapour reached the pilot light in the furnace, and as you might expect, ka-boom,” said Sgt Bruce Watts of the Wichita Police Department.
The victim was wearing a lottery T-shirt during the explosion.
