STANTON – Fire crews responding to an alarm at a Stanton condominium Monday night discovered a large marijuana-growing operation, authorities said.
The firefighters shortly after 6:15 p.m. responded to the residence in the 8900 block of Deira Lane, Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Jon Muir said.
They found a “large amount of marijuana being grown in the residence,” Muir said, along with chemicals and fertilizer.
Several hazardous-materials teams from the Orange County Fire Authority and the Anaheim Fire Department were called to the scene to make sure the chemicals weren’t dangerous.
By 8 p.m., they determined that the materials were being used to grow the marijuana and were not a danger to other residents.
“It’s just a great example of the haz-mat teams working together, along with the sheriff’s, to get this resolved very quickly,” Muir said.
The amount of marijuana found at the home wasn’t immediately clear. At least one person was reportedly being interviewed Monday night by Orange County Sheriff’s Department deputies.
