Florence County deputies confirm meth lab found

The scene sheriff's deputies responded to on Willow Drive in Florence Wednesday is now confirmed to be a meth lab, according to Florence County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mike Nunn.

Deputies evacuated some apartments about 7 p.m. Those residents were allowed back into their homes within a couple of hours.

The Florence County Emergency Response team responded to handle hazardous materials. Fire officials say the chemicals found on scene are the type associated with meth labs.

Three people were taken into custody, but there's no word on whether they face any charges.

We expect to learn more later today.
