EXPLOSION in San Diego – Meth Lab?
Good-ness! An explosion at a Midway hotel this morning sent three people to the hospital with burns. Authorities are speculating it was a possible Meth Lab. BOOM!
The blast in a guest room at the Heritage Inn in the 3300 block of Channel Way, just south of Interstate 8, was reported at about 11:15 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
Medics treated the victims at the scene and took at least one of them to UCSD Medical Center for treatment of possibly serious burns, a dispatcher said. Emergency personnel, meanwhile, evacuated the third floor of the three- story hotel.
It took crews about 40 minutes to extinguish the fire.
Personnel with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration were called in to investigate firefighters’ suspicion that the explosion resulted from an illicit methamphetamine production setup, DEA spokeswoman Amy Roderick said. [Via KFI]
