LOWELL (CBS) – Firefighters responding to a small fire in Lowell stumbled upon something much bigger: An elaborate marijuana growing operation.

Angel Luna faced a judge in Lowell Tuesday on drug trafficking and other charges.

Luna called the fire department Monday after his wood stove started a fire on his porch.

After they put the fire out, crews discovered a sophisticated operation in the basement and in a bedroom.

Lowell Police Captain Kelly Richardson said Luna had a gas generator outside of the home to disguise the electric bill. β€œIt was quite the operation,” he says.

Neighbors say Luna kept to himself and they had no idea what was going on in the house.
