BURTON, Michigan -- Police and firefighters were trying to determine Friday evening if a home in a quiet suburban neighborhood was being used to make potentially explosive methamphetamine.

Firefighters were called to the house on Lasalle Avenue near Belsay and Lapeer Roads about 4:30 p.m. after a process server, who was evicting someone at the home, called 911 to report hazardous materials in the basement and in a white cube truck parked in the driveway.

Among the chemicals were anhydrous ammonia and ether, chemicals used in the production of methamphetamine.

"If something were to ignite, we'd have a big explosion," said Deputy Burton Fire Chief Ken Gould.
