Author­i­ties say two broth­ers acci­den­tally blew up their house after cel­e­brat­ing a $75,000 win­ning lot­tery ticket by pur­chas­ing mar­i­juana and meth. Wichita police Sgt. Bruce Watts says one of the broth­ers was taken to a hos­pi­tal and the other to jail after Friday’s explo­sion. The Wichita Eagle reports that the injured 27-year-old brother is in seri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion with second-degree burns on his hands, arms and chest. Watts says the explo­sion hap­pened after one of the broth­ers went to the kitchen to refuel the butane torches they planned to use to light their bongs. The brother emp­tied a cou­ple large cans of butane lighter fluid, leak­ing butane into the air. Even­tu­ally, butane vapor reached the pilot light in the fur­nace, caus­ing the blast.
