At about midnight on Friday, the Bryan Fire Department was called to a residential fire at a duplex at 304 Center St. in Bryan. One occupant with serious injuries was taken to St. Vincent Medical Center while six others made it out safely.
Assisting the Bryan Fire Department in the investigation and removal of hazardous waste were the Multi-Area Narcotics Task Force, the Bryan Police Department, and the Williams County Sheriff’s Office. Numerous chemicals and apparatus used in the manufacture of Methamphetamine were removed from the residence. Initial findings indicate a failure occurred in a cooking vessel while Methamphetamine was being produced using a method commonly referred to as a “One Pot Shake and Bake.“
Suspect information is being withheld at this time due to the ongoing investigation.
The Red Cross assisted at the scene in providing temporary housing for the displaced residents.
