Police and emergency crews were still on the scene of a suspected meth lab in Mission on Sunday afternoon.

Police and emergency crews remain at the scene of a drug lab discovered in the area of Horne Street and Glasgow Avenue in Mission.

Glasgow was still blocked to traffic on Sunday afternoon, although traffic is clear to use the nearby overpass access to downtown.

At around noon on Saturday, Mission RCMP were called to assist the Mission Fire and Rescue Service with what was reported as a structure fire in a building in the 7100 block of Horne St., close to the riverside industrial area.

Fire crews located chemicals and items within the building which are consistent with a drug lab. No one was located at the site when emergency crews arrived.

Several neighbouring businesses were evacuated as a precaution, and several roads in the area were blocked Saturday afternoon and evening.

The scene is being examined by the RCMP Clandestine Lab Enforcement and Response Team.
