Vehicle found on fire

The St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department is investigating an incident during which a vehicle last week was found to be on fire in the 64000 block of Burr Oak Road in Burr Oak Township.

Witnesses told investigators three people July 1 were seen fleeing from the van and tossing items into a nearby ditch. Upon closer inspection, officials found a one-pot methamphetamine lab to be the cause of the fire.

A second one-pot lab, which was active, was also found inside the vehicle.

A 25-year-old man was questioned after he showed up with burns to his lower extremities at the Sturgis Hospital emergency room.
