Focus of Emergency Call Changes

Lauderdale County sheriff's deputies and agents with the Drug Task Force were called to a location on Allen Swamp Road around 4:30 p.m. Friday.

Volunteer firefighters had originally been dispatched to the scene on a fire call. They didn't find a fire, but they called law enforcement after they noticed fumes that turned out to be from a plastic container that melted.

Sheriff Billy Sollie said it appeared to be the beginning of a meth lab.

The task force is collecting evidence and investigating who had been using the house.
