Meth isn’t only a dangerous to those who use it, it’s also more than a little hazardous to the health of those who make the stuff, as seen in this morning’s report from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office of an apparent meth lab explosion at 4424 Lena Lane near Jacksonville last night around 6:30 p.m. Neighbors said they heard a bang, then the home caught fire as several people inside scattered in four to five cars and on foot — including one who left a 200-foot blood trail that officers followed until it disappeared into nearby woods.

At least two people who police say were inside the house when the explosion happened suffered fairly horrific burns and are being treated at UAMS. A report by a Pulaski County Sheriff Deputy who made contact with the burn victims appears after the jump.
