An explosion and fire in Rancho Cordova is being linked to a drug lab.  

The explosion Wednesday at the apartment complex on Mills Park sent two people to the hospital with serious burns and left nearly 150 people without a place to call home.  

Investigators say a drug lab ignited inside the apartment bathroom causing a violent explosion that damaged the building.  

The American Red Cross is helping to find temporary homes for the residents until the complex can be inspected.
