RAND, W.Va. --Kanawha County sheriff's deputies have issued warrants for two people after an apparent methamphetamine lab fire that started in a Rand apartment building on Monday.
Gregory William Young, 31, and Maria Rosalyn Young, 28, are both charged with operating a clandestine laboratory, Kanawha Sheriff's Cpl. Brian Humphreys said in a news release.
The couple was making meth inside their apartment at 5802 Starling Drive in Rand at about 8:45 p.m. when the fire began, he said. Deputies later determined that the meth lab started the fire. Paramedics took the couple to a nearby hospital for injuries sustained during the blaze. They will be arrested when they are released.
Kanawha County sheriff's meth lab technicians condemned the apartment building, which housed three additional units.
