Two men severely burned in meth explosion in Region 8

POINSETT COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – Two men were airlifted to the Med in Memphis after police say they burned themselves trying to cook meth.

According to the Poinsett County Sheriff's Department, Nikiaa Warren and Nathaniel Wright were severely burned after police say the meth they were cooking blew up.

Police responded to a burn call at 7501 Tate Lane in Harrisburg where they found Warren and Wright with burns to their bodies.

During the investigation police learned the two men were cooking meth at another home at 7206 Rose Lane when the meth lab blew up. The homeowner Roma Tate later admitted to police that he let Warren and Wright cook meth in the home in exchange for $100 in food stamps.

When police searched the home they found burnt clothes, a shoe, a burned one pot meth lab, and other items in the bathroom.

Police say another man, DeWarren Walker, was at the home at the time of the explosion but police haven't been able to locate him at this time.

Tate was arrested and charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth. Police say charges against Nikiaa Warren and Nathaniel Wright are expected following an investigation.
