Longmont, Colo. (AP) Seven people are out of their homes and have been decontaminated after a meth lab was discovered in their Longmont apartment building.
The six-unit building was emptied Friday after tests revealed contamination from a meth lab discovered in a basement apartment there a week before.
Seven adults were taken to a fire station for decontamination. Their pets six cats, two dogs and a bird were taken to a local humane society for boarding while the apartment building can be made safe.
Among the decontaminated residents was 42-year-old Stephen Derr, a maintenance worker at the complex who was arrested last week on suspicion of using the lab to make methamphetamines.
