Clarification given in meth lab story
The South Reporter has been asked to clarify a news story about a meth lab explosion that ran in last week’s newspaper.
Homeowners who live at the address listed in the story were away from home when the incident occurred and the man who was burned did not reside at the property or have permission to be on the property.
The meth lab was not on the property, but at another location, and the burn victim came to the address to use the water hose, according to residents at the address.
