ROCKFORD, Mich. - The Rockford Department of Public Safety says that a fire that caused damage to a Rockford apartment complex was caused by a resident cooking marijuana butter.

Rockford officials say that the resident was using butane lighter fluid in the cooking process in the bathroom when he lit a cigarette and the butane ignited.

That person was injured in the explosion and is still being treated at Spectrum Health for burns. His name is not yet being released.

Investigators met with structural engineers at the apartment complex Monday and determined the building is safe. Residents are being notified that they can return to their home.
