A York County home burst into flames while authorities say two people inside were cooking methamphetamine.

Neighbors of the mobile home on Rhyne Road near Shannon Meadow Road outside Clover called WSOC-TV when they saw crews in hazmat suits at the scene.

They say they heard a loud explosion at about 10:00 Wednesday night and then found the road blocked for hours.

Investigators say two people who were being allowed to stay in the home were cooking meth when it exploded and caught the mobile home on fire.

Kacey Stiles and Doyle Dailey, both of Gastonia, will be charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

York County sheriff’s deputies say one of the men had severe burns to his hands, but no one was seriously injured.
