WASHINGTON COUNTY, Va. -

A suspected meth lab could be behind a man being flown to the hospital with serious burns.  

Washington County, Virginia Sheriff Fred Newman says officers were called out to Carriage Lane Monday night. When they arrived they found a man with severe burns and remnants of a possible meth lab.

The man was flown to the hospital.

Officers also found an abandoned car where it appears an explosion happened. Sheriff Newman says they are looking into a possible link between that car and a suspected meth lab.
