BAYOU VISTA, LA (WAFB) -

A man was arrested on drug charges after part of a suspected meth lab caught fire Tuesday evening, according to authorities.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office reported Ryan Leblanc, 25, of Bayou Vista, was booked on charges of operation of a clandestine laboratory, possession of Dolophine and possession of drug paraphernalia. No bond was set.

Authorities said an off-duty sheriff's deputy saw a man run out of a home on Park Place with a container on fire. The deputy reportedly recognized it as a possible meth lab component and contacted narcotics detectives.

According to reports, detectives were given permission to search the home after talking to Leblanc and "located a clandestine lab and items used in making methamphetamine."

They said they also found a Dolophine pill and syringe in the home.

SMPSO added a cleanup crew was called to remove the meth lab.
