COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. -- Eric Scully will spend seven years in federal prison and serve five years’ probation after a storage facility exploded on North Lane Street in November of 2017.

The explosion sent Scully to the hospital with serious burns.

In November 2018, Scully pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Eugene to endangering human life and marijuana charges. He was sentenced on Thursday.

The investigation by law enforcement revealed that while making "butane-honey oil," one of Scully's machines caught fire, causing the explosion.

Investigators also said they found a sophisticated lab, as well as 1,200 pounds of processed marijuana, over 700 marijuana plants and more than 80 pounds of marijuana extract.
