“Known” Methamphetamine house burns in Missoula fire
February 24, 2017
MISSOULA – Firefighters had to use caution when fighting a trailer fire at what was called a “known meth house” by authorities on Wednesday morning.
Missoula City Fire Department crews responded to the 1700 block of Cooley Street at around 8 a.m. and arrived on the scene to find smoke and flames coming from the building with nearby structures being threatened.
Despite a quick attack, the structure is considered a total loss, but the surrounding structures were unaffected. Cooley Street was closed off by police near North Russell Street as crews battled the fire in an effort to prevent potential exposure to those nearby.
No injuries were reported as a result of the fire and the cause of the blaze is still under investigation
