Greenbrier deputies suspect meth lab linked to fire at trailer park

Greenbrier County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a fire they say was probably caused by a meth lab.

Fairlea and Lewisburg fire departments responded to reports of a fire at an outbuilding in the Fair Oaks Trailer Park Monday night, officials said Wednesday.

Greenbrier County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Bruce Sloan said firefighters found items that are usually used to make meth after they put out the fire.

“Sgt. Workman of the Sheriff’s Department responded,” Sloan said. “He found items that were known to be precursors for the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

“A meth tech from the State Police processed the scene. Sgt. Workman has conducted some interviews. The investigation is on-going. We have identified a person of interest and charges are forthcoming.”
