PAINTSVILLE, Ky. (WSAZ) — A man was badly burned Friday in a suspected meth lab fire and explosion along Depot Street in Paintsville, police say.

It happened about 1:15 p.m. Friday. A man in an upstairs apartment suffered severe burns to his hand and arm.

Police say the fire appeared to have started from a “shake and bake” meth lab. The explosion was so strong that it blew out an apartment window and into the playground area of a daycare across the street.

Materials used to make meth were found in the apartment. No charges have been filed at this time.
