"A MOBILE phone text message is believed to have sparked a fireball that razed a New Zealand house and almost blew up a man who was cooking cannabis oil in his bedroom.

Police said Darren Jeffries, 23, was caught in the fireball and ran "smoking from his head" to alert his partner and two children who were in the house.

Detective Constable Daniel MacIntosh said police speculated a text message sparked the fire.

Heavy vapour had formed as the cannabis and alcohol were heated on a small electric element in the house in the Wellington suburb of Johnsonville in January.

As Jeffries opened his mobile phone, the text lit up more than its screen - lawyer Noel Sainsbury told Wellington District Court Jeffries "nearly blew himself up"."
