Investigators found two methamphetamine labs inside a Bethlehem home on Thursday after a fire broke out at the property, according to police.
Officials with the Bethlehem police and fire departments responded shortly before 12:30 p.m. to a home at 746 Linden St. for a report of smoke and flames coming from the property’s third floor.
The fire was called to two alarms before it was extinguished about 15 minutes later. Neighbors reportedly told investigators the building was used as a drug manufacturing facility.
After extinguishing the flames, firefighters found evidence of a meth lab on the home’s third floor, according to police. Investigators said firefighters also found evidence of a second meth lab in the home’s basement.
