CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Hazardous Device Team is removing a meth lab from an apartment building in Mount Auburn after a small explosion at the property Friday evening.
Fire crews responded to a multi-unit building in the 2200 block of Vine Street at about 8 p.m. after receiving a report of a "small explosion" and fire at the property.
Once at the scene, located at the intersection of Vine and Thrill streets, crews found "items" inside the building that led to a woman being questioned and handcuffed by police, according to 9 On Your Side reporter Bryce Anslinger.
A stretch of Vine Street was cordoned off for several hours after investigators determined at about 9 p.m. that there was a meth lab inside the building, according to officials from District 4 of the Cincinnati Police Department.
The hazardous materials team planned to stay on the scene until around 1 a.m., at which time roads in the area were expected to reopen.
Police officials said early Saturday morning that everyone inside the apartment building had been evacuated but no one else in the area was affected. All evacuated people are expected to be able to return to their homes after the scene has been "processed," according to Cincinnati police.
No one has been charged at this time.
The incident remains under investigation.
