A believed meth lab explosion sent three people to jail and destroyed a Claiborne Road home last week.
On Nov. 19, LaFollette Police Sgt. Joe Brown responded to a structure fire at 213 Claiborne Road. The residence was fully engulfed in flames when Brown arrived, records indicate.
At the scene Brown reportedly encountered Eric Alan Spradlin, 30, and Katlynn Jean Willoughby, 21, both of 213 Claiborne Road. The pair allegedly admitted the fire had started in the garage after a chemical reaction from a meth cook caused an explosion.
