A meth lab at a senior citizen complex in Grand Ledge triggers a fire. That is the word from Grand Ledge Police early Tuesday morning.
Shortly after midnight, police and firefighters rushed to Serenity Place on South Clinton to put out a fire.
News 10 was first on the scene and authorities tell us they discovered a meth lab once they went inside the building.
Firefighters evacuated the complex, so a narcotics squad could investigate.
Some residents were moved to a community room.
Grand Ledge Police tell us they have one suspect, but no arrests have been made.
Two police officers were treated and released from a local hospital.
Serenity Place is an apartment complex where the majority of the residents are elderly.

    Why has there been no follow up with how the Senrenity place folks ae doing and if there's been an arrest yet? It's hard to imagine that this is a healthy enviroment for these people to move back in to so soon. How did management not kow what was going on under everones nose...the people who live there did! This was just plain irresponsibility on the part of management! plaese up date us on this story. Thank you.

    As a responder who was there on scene that night I assure you everyone was properly taken care of and all precautions were followed. I do take it as a personal insult that anyone have a problem with the news covering the rescue personnel.

    We are very disappointed at the lack of follow up on this shocking March 25 event. We moved a loved one into this senior citizen building but now question our decision. The (part-time) manager is hard to reach, difficult to locate. and rarely returns messages left for her. We are very concerned about the lack of security and distress caused to such a large group of people. We would hope that spotlighting this situation would cause improvements to be made. Were the chemicals entering the central ventilation system? How could management be unaware of this situation? Shouldn't the (Federally subsidized) building be thoroughly decontaminated rather than concentrated only on apartments around the meth lab unit? Why was this startling event buried and confined to rescue personnel injuries? Your coverage could help the hundreds of people living in and visiting this building on a daily basis. Thanx.
