A Tulsa man experienced severe burns after a methamphetamine lab in his apartment caught fire, Tulsa police said.
Officers were dispatched at 11:15 p.m. Thursday to assist emergency responders on the scene of a fire at the Tamarack Place Apartments, 1110 E 60th St., said Officer Jillian Roberson.
The apartment’s resident initially told police he was making model airplanes and caused the fire while doing so, she said. He later said the fire was caused by a meth lab.
When he was interviewed at a hospital, he reportedly told detectives he had been making meth for some time.
No other injuries were reported.
