(SYRACUSE) - A northern Indiana police officer found methamphetamine cooking in bag inside his squad car after arresting a man on a domestic disturbance charge.

An officer for the Syracuse police department 40 miles northwest of Fort Wayne noticed a strange chemical odor after taking the man to the Kosciusko County Jail. Thinking it was coming from the jail's intake bay, he pulled out.

The odor got worse and the back seat began to fill with smoke.

The Journal Gazette reports that the officer said a nylon bag in the back seat that he originally thought was the man's clothing burst into flames after he pulled it from the car.

The officer was treated at a hospital for inhalation of sulfuric acid and gas after Saturday night's incident.
