    Modesto garage fire leads to pot plant discovery

    Bee Staff Reports

    A Modesto man was arrested this afternoon after 18 pot plants were discovered by firefighters trying to put out a blaze in the detached garage he was renting.

    Michael Allen Kendrick, 43, was charged with cultvation of marijuana, a felony, according to Sgt. Brian Findlen of the Modesto Police Department.

    Firefighters were called to a house in the 100 block of College Avenue after there were reports of smoke coming from a large detached near the alley.

    Modesto firefighters work on top of a roof to put out a fire at a detached building in an alley behind a College Ave. home, near Alice St. in Modesto, Tuesday, October 27, 2009.

    There were "rooms" inside the garage partitioned off by plywood planks, with the windows boarded up tight. Firefighters created ventilation through the roof, and were able to put the fire out in about 15 minutes, according to Battalion Chief Dan Hinshaw.

    Once inside, firefighters struggled to make their way through old air-conditioner units, filing cabinets and other items.

    They then stumbled upon the marijuana plants, some as high as five feet, and other growing equipment. They called police.

    Kendrick was the only occupant of the structure, Hinshaw said.

    He said the fire started when Kendrick was spray-painting inside, and a heater that was running ignited the fumes, which ignited some of the contents inside.

    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    This guy is dumber than the 2nd one
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!
