Police and Firefighters Respond to Man Burned in Meth Lab Fire

Posted: Updated:

Fire crews responded to an apartment fire Thursday evening that left a Tulsa resident in the hospital with severe burns.

It happened at about 11:15 p.m. when an officer responded to a call to assist TFD/EMSA at the Tamarack Place apartment complex on East 60th St. for a possible meth lab fire. 

According to TPD's release, officers responded to the scene and made contact with the resident of the apartment. The suspect's original statement to officers was that he burnt himself and caught his apartment on fire while making model airplanes. 

Upon further investigation he admitted that he was manufacturing methamphetamine. He was transported by EMSA for treatment of his burns that were very severe. 

Special Investigations Division (SID) officers were notified and interviewed the suspect at the hospital, according to TPD. He made statements to SID officers that he was making meth and had been doing so for some time.

SID and TFD arson investigators collected some evidence from the scene. No one else was in the apartment at the time of the fire and no other injuries were reported.
