ARCADIA/MONROVIA-DUARTEARCADIA/MONROVIA-DUARTE Mountain View News Saturday, January 15, 2022 7 ARCADIA/MONROVIA-DUARTEARCADIA/MONROVIA-DUARTE Mountain View News Saturday, January 15, 2022 7 

On January 10, 2022, at 2:23 p.m. the Arcadia Fire Department dispatch center received a call about a possible 
structure fire in the 11700 block of Goldring Road. 

Arcadia Police Department personnel, as well as members of the Arcadia Fire Department, responded to 
the location and determined an explosion had occurred at a business on Goldring Road. 

Police officers and medics contacted an individual who was inside the business at the time of the explosion. 
Medics provided first-aid, and he was transported to the Los Angeles County Medical Center due to the 
severity of his burns. 

Firefighters rendered the building safe and did not locate anyone else inside the location. The male's name 
is being withheld for investigative purposes. The initial investigation inside the location revealed the explosion 
may be related to a lab that was extracting Butane Honey Oil or Butane Hash Oil (BHO). 

Honey oil is described as a marijuana concentrate made by extracting THC from marijuana, according to 
the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
These labs are prone to explosions because butane is used to extract THC from marijuana and is highlyflammable as it can be ignited by a small spark or static electricity. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, 
the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. 

Members of a LA County Hazardous Material Team will be dismantling the lab and making the area safe to 
enter for further investigation. The case is currently under investigation by the Arcadia Police Department,
Detective Bureau. 

Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at (626)
574-5151, case number 22-0117. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call "Crime 
Stoppers" by di-aling (800) 222-TIPS (8477), use your smartphone by downloading the “P3 Tips” Mobile

 The City of Arcadia will implement two new restrictions to reduce plastic waste over two phases in 2022. 

Phase One will restrict the distribution of disposable food service ware items such as utensils, napkins, and 
condiment packets to by-request only, beginning onFebruary 3, 2022. 

Phase Two will prohibit the use of polystyrene containers for prepared food and beverages and will require 
the use of containers made from alternative materials other than polystyrene, beginning on December 3, 

Both waste reduction initiatives are intended to decrease the amount of plastic waste in the City, and to address 
the increase in the amount of to-go food waste generated as a result of the Covid19 pandemic. 

California Assembly Bill 1276, passed by the State legislature in 2021, parallelsPhase One of the City’s Ordinance 
and implements the “opt-in” requirement for disposable food service ware items statewide beginning 
on June 1, 2022. 

All food providers located in the city are required to comply with the new regulations, including restaurants, 
cafeterias, and third-party app-based delivery platforms. There are certain exemptions such as items 
packaged or repackaged outside the city limits, and food providers may make a written request for exemption 
to all or part of the Ordinance. Written exemptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
