SBI investigating Lenoir County meth lab explosion

Posted: Updated:
KINSTON, N.C. - A meth lab exploded inside a home in Lenoir County, sending one man to the hospital.

Lenoir County Sheriff Chris Hill says it happened around 10:15 Monday night on Tully Hill Road in Kinston.

That road was closed and 9 On Your Side had a crew on the scene shortly after it happened.
    
Crime scene tape was up around the house and deputies were investigating into the early morning hours.
    
Deputies say five people were inside the house at the time of the explosion and the fire was quickly put out.
    
One person, 43-year-old Chad Williams, went to the hospital with second degree burns to his legs.
    
Sheriff Hill says that 48-year-old Gary Taylor rents the house. Deputies say once the evidence is collected and photographed, they will be able to determine the charges and if any arrests can be made.
    
The SBI and Hazmat teams were called in to investigate and clean up the meth lab.
