Tonight at 6: Busted meth labs leave residents in living in contamination
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - When police bust a meth lab, the health department posts bright orange signs on the door.
The signs are a notice of methamphetamine contamination, warning that "hazardous chemicals and residual contamination may pose a serious health threat to those that enter."
The city's environmental health administrator says toxins left over from a meth lab can cause breathing problems and burns.
Troubleshooter Eric Flack went to some of the meth contaminated homes on the health department's list and discovered people unaware - or just plain ignoring the danger. Some of the homes with signs had children living inside the contaminated homes.
Now, he is investigating gaps in state law that are creating this danger.
Be sure to watch his full report Monday night on WAVE 3 News at 6.
