Last updated on Thursday, February 21, 2013

(LAFAYETTE) - Crews from the Lafayette Fire Department responded to an active fire at a Lafayette home on the city’s northeast side.

WLFI reports that the house, located at 1801 Pierce Street, reportedly caught fire shortly after 1 a.m. An anonymous party made the call.

When fire personnel arrived on scene, they discovered a portion of the home's second story was engulfed.

According to Lafayette police lieutenant Perry Amos, what appeared to be a "one pot" meth lab was found upstairs.
