Grease Fire Leads To Pot Bust

Tampa, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-A kitchen grease fire lands a man in jail after firefighters find a marijuana growing operation inside a house.

When the grease fire at 29 year-old Antonio Rivero's house on Libby Loop caused some fireworks to go off, fire-rescue was called in. 

With the fire out, firefighters discovered some pot plants, indoor growing lights and other equipment used to grow marijuana.

Rivero is charged with the manufacture of cannabis, possession of cannabis with intent to sell, child neglect and more.
