Pierce County authorities investigated an explosion and resulting fire May 25 at N655 County Highway BB after firefighters found items they suspected were related to illegal drugs. Evidence of chemicals, ingredients and equipment commonly used to make methamphetamine were recovered. The fire destroyed the trailer home along with two cars and a motorcycle.

To The Editor: I am concerned about the use of lawn chemicals. I lost a dog to a neighbor's' use of these products. Birds are very susceptible. I urge everyone to give this very serious thought. Judy Beers Red Wing
