TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa police say a weekend explosion of a suspected methamphetamine lab at an apartment was particularly powerful.

Police said Monday that the Sunday afternoon blast blew out a door and caused a wall to buckle in the first-floor dwelling.

Investigators say they found evidence of a one-pot meth lab in the bathroom of the apartment. The explosion left a man in critical condition with burns over 40 percent of his body. Another man was arrested.

The Tulsa World reports (http://is.gd/nSKqq2 ) the blast moved walls in the apartment about five inches and caused furniture in an upstairs apartment to bounce about the same distance.

A police report says lithium batteries, sulfuric acid, acetone and drain cleaner were among the items found in the apartment.
