QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -
Quincy police are searching for a suspect after a meth lab leads to a house fire early Friday morning.
Sgt. Shannon Pilkington says officers are looking for Donald McClelland, 32, for his possible connection to the fire. The fire started on the second floor of the home located at 517 Sycamore at around 1 a.m. Friday morning. Pilkington says the suspect ran from the home and police are still searching for that person.
Police believe that man may have been burned in the fire.
"It appeared that there was some type of flash fire due to the chemical processing and manufacturing," Master Sgt. David Roll with the Illinois State Police said. "Mixing all these caustic chemicals together at one time can be dangerous."
Pilkington say there were also other people in the home at the time of the fire started.
