ALBION, Pa. (AP) — Police in northwestern Pennsylvania are investigating the discovery of a suspected methamphetamine lab inside a large apartment complex after an explosion and fire.

Firefighters arrived at about 2 p.m. Monday. Windows were blown out of a second-floor apartment in the north wing of the building and investigators said they found the suspected lab inside the apartment.
