Two firefighters were injured in a fire Tuesday morning at a residence that may have housed a methamphetamine operation in Conneaut, Ohio.
One firefighter suffered a possible fractured arm when he slipped on ice while moving a hoseline, according to a report from The Star Beacon (http://bit.ly/YYYiwo). Another firefighter suffered a minor wrist injury.
Two occupants of the house face possible arson charges because the chemicals and products used in making the drug endangered first responders. The suspects both suffered burns in the fire.
Firefighters were dispatched to the scene at around 7:19 a.m., a fire official said. The fire began in a second-floor bedroom, the same location where several one-pot meth labs were discovered. The fire is under investigation.
