Drug lab explodes in Edmonton garage, children in house not injured

Edmonton police say it's fortunate two children in a northeast home were not harmed when a drug lab blew up in its detached garage.

Firefighters responded to the explosion Sunday afternoon and two adults were taken to hospital.

A 33-year-old man has since been released and a 29-year-old woman continues to receive medical care.

Police say the children, ages 10 and 11, were also taken to hospital as a precaution.

They are now in the care of family members.

Charges are pending against the two adults.
