ASHTABULA, Ohio (AP) A fire chief in northeast Ohio says a drug lab in the room of a nursing home resident has caused a fire that killed one person and injured six others.

Ashtabula (ash-tuh-BYOO'-luh) fire Chief Ron Pristera says the man died Monday, following the Sunday night fire at Park Haven Nursing Home. He says the lab was making methamphetamine.

Seems strange since I would take it that nurses and other had access and the smell would have been terrible makig meth.

True. I wonder if it was a first-timer, maybe some drug-addled relative of some unfortunate resident. After all, if it blew up, they weren't too good at it.
In this eastern urban area where I live, there hasn't been much meth at all. There was one apartment blow up from an MIT grad, I think, cooking in an apartment. (Maybe he flunked out). Anyway, there's so much oxycontin around here, why bother?
I loathe substance abuse so much, what it does to everyone. But meth, pure poison.

Wow. What an idiot! First of all, endangering all of those people in his WORKPLACE?! Second of all, there are many people in nursing homes due to their substance abuse problems. Can't believe this story. It is shocking what people will do (to themselves and others) for a buck.

Might not have been a worker, but whoever did it, certainly endangered everyone. But then, substance abusers certainly do... lose perspective.

I saw this on internet news today. Not enough details have been released to make any kind of judgment. It could have been off quite far away from the residential area, with ventilation fans running so the smell was vented to the outside. Nursing homes tend to be a bit "smelly" anyway due to the many incontinent residents they have so any smell may not have appeared unusual.

This was inevitable. There will be more and more crazy stories like this over the next few years, as the wildest generation does its thing.

Update: COLUMBUS, Ohio A nursing home where a 31-year-old man died after a meth lab fire that injured several other people was cited for 18 violations last year, including not providing adequate care, according to state records obtained Tuesday.

The victim was not a patient or employee of Park Haven Home in Ashtabula, authorities said as they sought to uncover how the meth lab was set up in a resident's room and how long it went undetected. Police said charges were expected against two men who were also burned in the fire.

I wouldn't be surprise as the chemical are so hazardous that others maybe effected as far as health. I watched o TV has authrities removed the chemicals in a meth lab. The report said it was reported by a neighbor because of the smells.
