LENOX, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say several people are being questioned after undercover investigators keeping an eye on drug suspects saw two small explosions at a central New York home.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports (https://bit.ly/1XJAZUM ) that the Madison County Sheriff’s Office says the investigators had been conducting surveillance at a home in the rural town of Lenox after receiving tips about methamphetamine being made there.

Officials say the home was under surveillance Tuesday night when two small explosions erupted from a backyard fire pit. Police say they then moved in and uncovered a meth lab.

Sheriff Allen Riley said the lab had been “a substantial operation” but no arrests have been announced yet. More information is expected to be released Thursday.
