The investigation into a house fire over the weekend in Elmira has resulted in the arrest of a 30-year-old Elmira man.
After firefighters extinguished the blaze at the East Thurston Street residence, they discovered the remnants of a clandestine meth lab inside the attic of the home. Police were able to secure several items from the home that are believed to be related to the manufacture of methamphetamine. Timothy Stilson was arrested Monday on a felony charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance.
He was sent to Chemung County Jail without bail.
