St. Albans police arrested two people Tuesday after a report of a midday house fire.
Joseph Miller, 38, and Sherry Burdette, 40, both of St. Albans were arrested after emergency crews responded to the scene for that fire, Capt. James Agee said. Officers and investigators with the Metro Drug Unit found meth-making materials inside the home in the 400 block of Washington Street, Agee said.
Both Miller and Burdette are charged with operating a meth lab and may face additional charges because children were inside the residence. The two were arraigned in Kanawha County Court Tuesday afternoon.
