DADE CITY – Deputies have identified the two people injured when a methamphetamine lab exploded at a Dade City house.

Kenneth Dixon, 39, and Adonia “Star” Olsen, 45, suffered burns and were taken to hospital by helicopter.

Dixon was listed in serious condition Wednesday afternoon at Tampa General Hospital. Olsen’s condition was not available.

Dixon and Olsen were renting the house at 15615 14th St., the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said.

Another woman who was in the home at the time of the explosion Tuesday left before deputies arrived. She hasn’t been identified and it isn’t known whether she was injured.

No arrests have been made and detectives are trying to determine who owned the meth lab.

Dixon has been to prison three times since 2004, records state. His latest stint, which ran from October 2009 until his release in July, was for drug convictions related to methamphetamine.

Neighbor David Carrillo said he was in bed when he heard the explosion, which shook his house.

He ran outside and saw his neighbors on the ground screaming. Black smoke was everywhere, Carrillo said.

Investigators dismantled the clandestine meth lab and disposed of the chemicals
