Two abandoned homes in Jackson county caught fire over night and officials believe a meth lab may have started one of them.
The first happened just before 8pm Thursday on the 2700 block of East South Street in Leoni township.
Blackman-Leoni fire crews could see smoke and flames coming from the vacant house when they arrived and the first floor had already collapsed.
"We were just out here and out of nowhere all of a sudden boom, we saw flames going up everywhere," said neighbor Brendan Finerty,
A two story house is now left to rubble on east south street in Jackson county.
Black Leoni township believes the fire started in the basement, but have yet to identify a cause, they say the vacant house may have been used as a meth lab.
"The building had no utilities to it, so that eliminates a couple of natural or accidental causes," said Deputy Director Blackman-Leoni Public Safety Jon Johnston.
Diane Nodine lives two houses down and says lately she has noticed a change in the air.
"Just a few days ago, it's been on and off lately, we have been smelling the Meth lab, but we didn't know what it was," Nodine said.
And over the last few months, Brendan Finerty says people constantly cut through his yard to go that house.
"I would be leaving for work I'd be coming home in the morning and I would see random cars, nothing really nice older run down cars, going in and out, they would try and park behind the house, along side it and never out front in the driveway," Finerty said.
With young kids growing up close by, Finerty is glad the fire department is working to solve the cause of the fire and clean up the area.
"It was run down, it was bringing down the whole neighborhood and it feels a little bit safer to know that its not down there anymore," Finerty said.
The other fire happened around 2 Friday morning at a vacant home near Robert street and Joy avenue in Summit township.
Fire officials believe no one was inside at the time, it took about 30 minutes to put out the flames.
This cause is also under investigation and there's no word on whether or not the two fires are related.
