Investigators found an illegal drug lab in the rubbles of a San Francisco home that exploded last week. The blast killed a woman and damaged neighboring homes. 

Darron Price, 53, was arrested on Friday afternoon for investigation of involuntary manslaughter, manufacturing narcotics, and two counts of child endangerment. 

It was not immediately known if he has an attorney to comment on his behalf.

The 22nd Avenue house exploded Thursday morning. 

One person was seriously injured and a woman’s body was found after the explosion. 

Investigators also “determined that an active illegal narcotics manufacturing lab was in the residence,” police said.

Police did not release the names of the victims.
