Possible Honey Oil Lab Explosion Rocks Main Street Motel

A Monday evening explosion in a room at the River Inn Motel on Main Street in Susanville damaged several rooms and sent one man to UC Davis’ Burn Unit for treatment. Police say the room was being used as a possible ‘honey oil’ lab.

Officers from the Susanville Police Department were dispatched to the reported explosion at around 7:00p.m., arriving to find significant damage to a motel room located in the southern portion of the complex.

Officers were contacted by the room’s occupant, identified as 37-year old Susanville resident Kyle Coger, who had sustained major burn injuries from the explosion.

Fire and medical personnel arrived and provided aid for Coger, who was transported to Banner Lassen Medical Center, then immediately transferred to the UC Davis Burn Unit.

“While investigating the explosion, officers located several items inside the motel room that revealed that the room was being used as a possible honey oil lab,” explained Police Captain Ryan Cochran. “It was also determined that at the time of the explosion a young child was in the room, however he sustained no injuries.”

Several charges regarding the explosion will be forwarded to the Lassen County District Attorney’s Office for review.

The Susanville Police Department thanked the Susanville Fire Department, SEMSA and the Lassen County Sherriff’s Office for their assistance.
