A female Police Officer’s being treated for burns in hospital following an explosion at a house she was searching at Paralowie.

A substance from a Moneva St garage blew up yesterday morning when she was removing it from the premises.

The search sparked when crews found heroin and stolen property nearby.

Injuries to her arms, hands and face are considered serious but non-life threatening.

No one was home at the time of the incident but a 35 year old local man was arrested a short time later.

He'll face court next month.
