APRIL 3, 2014: Two in Custody Following Meth Lab Fire
MIAMISBURG -- New information has been released about a fire at a suspected meth lab that forced evacuations Thursday.
Two people are in custody, taken from the scene before 6:00 Thursday evening. Miamisburg Police say it was a breaking-and-entering call that led them to the scene at 2444 Maue Road, and that the fire started after they got to the suspects.
Black smoke could be seen from around Miamisburg. The fire started inside an outbuilding behind a vacant home at the Maue Road address.
One male suspect was put in handcuffs and taken to a Miami Township ambulance after being bitten by a police dog.
"He was refusing to listen to officers and wouldn't comply so subsequently ended up getting bit," said Miamisburg Police Sgt. William Kelly.
A female suspect was also arrested without incident.
Both suspects, and police and fire personnel were sent to area hospitals to be evaluated because of the potentially hazardous chemicals involved in the incident.
"It kind of smelled like burning plastic, I'd say," said Jason Barber, who was evacuated from his work nearby fire by police because of the health hazard.
"I was in a meeting and they came over the conference system and told everybody to evacuate the building immediately and they said it wasn't a joke," Barber said. "You could definitely smell it when you came out of the building. I looked up over the trees and there was smoke coming out."
Residents in nearby Miamisburg were also told to stay inside and turn off their HVAC systems.
The vacant property is for sale.
"There's some people who go in there at times but I don't know what they're doing," Barber said.
As of Thursday evening, police say the area around the fire is no longer a hazard.
But as to whether or not meth production started the blaze, Sgt. Kelly said, "It's suspected. It's still being investigated to determine if that's the case."
MIAMISBURG -- Multiple fire crews are trying to contain a suspected meth lab fire at 2444 Maue Road near Earl Boulevard. The fire broke out just after 4pm and smoke could be seen billowing from the trailer from a couple miles away. Police and fire crews are telling residents who live within a mile of the fire to stay inside. Two nearby companies, including a gymnastics school have been evacuated.
Police did arrest someone on scene.
