A woman accused of causing a drug-related explosion that injured her and a 12-year-old boy at a home in San Francisco’s Ingleside neighborhood on Tuesday made a tearful initial appearance in court today. Angelic Cisneros, 33, pleaded not guilty to charges related to the blast reported at 8:50 p.m. Tuesday at 1228 Capitol Ave. near Ocean Avenue. After a fire was quickly extinguished at the home, investigators determined that a butane tank exploded as drugs were allegedly being manufactured, according to police.
Following the explosion, Cisneros and the boy went to a hospital for treatment of burn injuries. As of Wednesday night, the boy remained hospitalized with injuries that are not life-threatening. Police have not said what Cisneros’ relationship was to the injured boy. Cisneros, whose face was red and splotchy from apparent burn wounds, began openly crying when she was led into the courtroom at the San Francisco Hall of Justice this afternoon.
After she consulted with her attorney from the public defender’s office before the arraignment, Cisneros put her hands in her head. Prosecutors have charged Cisneros with six felonies — recklessly causing a fire causing bodily injury, causing a fire to a structure, child endangerment, attempting to manufacture a controlled substance, possession of drugs for sale, and having a house used for drug sales and manufacture, according to the district attorney’s office. She was also charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. Cisneros pleaded not guilty to all charges and bail was set at $350,000 before she exited the courtroom in tears.She is set to appear in court again later this month.
