Lumberton Police Chief Danny Sullins told 12News that officers were called to a home on Jenny Lane in Lumberton Sunday night for reports of a small explosion. When officers arrived, they smelled chemicals in the house and called Hardin County Sheriff’s Office, the Lumberton Fire Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Chief Sullins said investigators found chemicals used in the making of meth. He said a man suffered burns to thirty percent of his body while the woman suffered burns to her arms. The man was taken to Galveston for treatment.
Chief Sullins said he expects felony warrants to be issued for four suspects, including the two who were burned. Their ages range from 18 to 30-years-old.
Chief Sullins said the people who were living at the house were renting it.
