Is it just me or did local news exaggerate the meth lab fire at Motel Manor in Boonville? All over the head lines was EXPLOSION, when really it was a small mishap that caused minmal fire damage. Just seems like poor reporting, when a more accurate headline would have read ‘Meth Fire At Motel Manor’.
After seeing video of room 14 where the reported meth production was taken place I didn’t notice any damage, besides some light fire damage. Not that this justifies what was going on, personally I’m glad the meth makers are accounted for.
In addition, I was not aware that meth makers made their product in hotel rooms. Is this common place? If it is, how much of a threat does this create for regular patrons of small motels/hotels? From what I understand Meth production has the ability to cause a real explosion capable of killing, injuring, or at least creating sizable structural damage to buildings.
