Comstock Township Fire Department responded to the blaze at about 3:30 p.m. Friday in the 600 block of Rex Street. Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene after firefighters found items they believed to be used in producing meth, according to a news release.
Police executed a search warrant at the home and found remnants of suspected meth. More evidence of meth production was found on the property surrounding the house as well.
In order to fight the blaze, firefighters doused the home’s west side with water, knocked out windows to ventilate flames and ran a fire-hose inside the house. Within 30 minutes fire crews had extinguished the blaze.
Police will be seeking charges after the investigation is complete.
