Police say they have arrested a San Francisco mother in connection to yesterday's house explosion that sent both mom and a 12-year-old boy to the hospital with burns.

Sgt. Daryl Fong tells us that police arrested 33-year-old Angelic Cisneros yesterday afternoon on suspicion of recklessly causing a fire, child endangerment, and drug possession. She was booked into the San Francisco County Jail.

The Fire Department responded to a call at 1228 Capitol Ave. just before 9 p.m. on Tuesday. Firefighters called police to alert them of the possibility of a drug lab inside the home. 

When police went to investigate, they quickly determined Cisneros was attempting to make drugs when a butane tank exploded, Fong said. The windows were blown out and debris from inside the residence was found outside.

Drug paraphernalia was also discovered inside the residence, police said.

Cisneros and the boy -- who police would not confirm was Cisneros' son -- went to St. Luke's Hospital, where they were transferred to the St. Francis Burn Center.

Their injuries were not considered life-threatening, Fong said.
