A 52-year-old Torrance man was injured after a trailer blew up in what officials believe may have been an accident related to a meth lab, reports KTLA.

The incident occurred at about 7:45 this morning. The man, whose name hasn't been released, was found by police standing outside the trailer at the Torrance Mobile Home Park with severe burns to his upper body. He was taken to a local hospital where he's being treated.

The trailer was completely demolished, reports the Daily Breeze:

"There's not much left, the trailer that was involved is pretty much just a frame - everything else is gone," ]Torrance Fire Department spokesman Steve] Deuel said. "There was also damage to a nearby trailer and vehicle."
