Blaze exposes DIY Marajuana factory

A DIY Marajuana factory has been discovered by chance in a quiet Coventry street.

Firefighters stumbled on a huge haul of cannabis plants while attending a fire at 16 Stanway Road, Earlsdon, yesterday afternoon.

They found 149 plants in bedrooms and the attic.

Police were called and they recovered hydroponics equipment, ultraviolet lighting, transformers, thermometers, fans and other equipment.

Sergeant Steve Arnold, of Chace Avenue Police, said it appeared nobody was living at the house and it was solely being used to cultivate cannabis.
