CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials in southwest Ohio are investigating a vehicle fire that occurred in a grocery store parking lot after authorities determined it was caused by a one-pot meth lab explosion.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s office says deputies and fire officials responded to a report of a vehicle fire in the parking lot of Remke Markets in Cincinnati shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday. Authorities say a witness saw an explosion inside a 2000 Dodge Durango before two men exited the vehicle, picked up a burning object and fled.

Narcotics officials and fire investigators determined the explosion was caused by a single-pot meth lab inside the vehicle.

Officials haven’t located the two men who exited the car, but believe they suffered chemical burns to their upper bodies.
