Rock Hill woman arrested after meth lab explosion

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - A Rock Hill woman has been arrested after authorities say a meth lab exploded at her home.

York County sheriff's deputies say 37-year-old Sonya Sloan Burton was charged with third-degree arson, unlawful neglect of a child and unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine in the presence of a minor.

Deputies say Burton and two men were cooking methamphetamine in a bathtub at Burton's mobile home when chemicals exploded Friday.

Burton's children and two other teens were home at the time. Deputies say the two men cooking the meth with Burton fled after the blast.

Burton had burns on her right arm and was treated and released from a hospital. She was being held at the York County jail without bond, and it wasn't known if she had a lawyer.
