Meth Lab Causes House Fire in Lansing Township


Officials are now saying that a fire that broke out early Wednesday was caused due to a meth explosion.

Multiple fire departments are trying to figure out what sparked a house fire in Lansing Township.

The fire broke out around 5:30a.m. Wednesday on the 100 block of north Catherine Street, two miles west of the State Capitol. Tri-County Narcotics Officers and State Fire Investigators were called to the scene.

Police tell us that at least one person was injured in the fire. A man came to Sparrow Hospital with burn injuries and was air-lifted to the University of Michigan Hospital Trauma Burn Center. Officials say he wasn't at the scene when they arrived and they would not say if he is a suspect in the incident.

A neighbor called for help immediately after seeing the flames. Ron Wilkes says he grabbed a flashlight and found the woman who lived there crying on the front yard.

No arrests have been made.



Fire officials say the house is a total loss. The investigation is still ongoing.
