Was it a meth lab that blew up?
No it was a chimney fire. The police were searching the area for Troy Lee Thomas and saw the house on fire. The police went inside and got 3 people and 2 pets out just in time. I think the fire distracted the police and they quit looking for Troy Lee Thomas who did have a meth lab in his back seat before he jumped out of his car at the end of Henry Town Road. He then swam across the river and hid on the muck dam. Even if he was involved in drugs he is still some mothers son.
