Meth fire in Marquette Township
MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP, MI-- Michigan State Police are investigating a brush fire in connection with a meth production site.
The Marquette Township Fire Department was called to a wooded area off of Forestville Road around 8:00 Friday morning and found meth manufacturing components at the fire scene. They notified troopers from the Negaunee Post, who say the 1,000-square-foot fire likely started from an attempt to “cook” methamphetamine.
A State Police meth clean-up team responded to the scene and secured the components and other hazardous materials.
Troopers have no suspects at this time, and the incident remains under investigation.
