Adrian apartments evacuated after meth lab fire

A meth lab in an Adrian apartment caused a fire and forced an evacuation over the weekend.

It happened Saturday night at the Carriage House Apartments on Sand Creek Highway.

Police say while 35-year-old Joshua Hatt was mixing chemicals to make methamphetamines, a fire erupted. They say Hatt put the fire out in bathtub and tried to get rid of the evidence but was stopped by police.

Hazmat crews were called to the scene and some apartments were evacuated while the hazardous materials were cleaned up.

Hatt was arrested.
