A man whose 7-year-old son was visiting when a refrigerator exploded in an Encanto home where hash oil was being produced was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in state prison.

Luis Famoso, 27, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to felony child endangerment, manufacturing a controlled substance — cannabis — and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Famoso also has a 2008 conviction for carjacking, said Deputy District Attorney Cari Philpott.

Famoso and two roommates — Andrew Patrick Cullen and Steven Patterson — were arrested after the non-injury explosion on June 27, 2013, at the home on Paradise Street in Encanto.

Fire officials said they found marijuana plants and a hash oil extraction operation in the residence.

Cullen pleaded guilty to manufacturing of a controlled substance and was sentenced to three years, eight months in local custody. Patterson pleaded guilty to the same charge and received 240 days in jail.
