UNDATED -- Three people are in serious condition after a bizarre explosion in Ottawa County on Wednesday.  A fire extinguisher filled with anhydrous ammonia exploded inside a car.

The three people inside the car jumped out, and stripped off most of their burning clothing.  They all suffered major chemical burns.  Investigators believe they may have been planning to use the ammonia to make meth.

Next week, the state of Oklahoma offers a special presentation of "Crystal Darkness," a documentary on the effects of meth on youth and families.

Crystal Darkness Oklahoma is a coalition of Oklahomans working together to stop methamphetamine in our state.

It will air on The News On 6 Tuesday evening at 6:30.
