NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A man and a woman are facing charges after police say they started a fire while trying to make meth in a North Charleston hotel room.

North Charleston Police Department officials said 32-year-old Christopher Meredith and 33-year-old Carmen Jensen were arrested late Wednesday and charged with attempting to manufacture methamphetamine.

According to an incident report, police responded to a fire at the Relax Inn at 2512 Ashley Phosphate Road around just before midnight Wednesday. When they got inside, they saw smoke coming from room 110.

Officials walked inside the room to find "suspicious items commonly used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine," the report states.

Police then arrested Meredith and Jensen, who were registered to the room.

About 30 people had to wait outside before they were allowed to return to their rooms around 1 a.m. Thursday

The hotel manager said there was little damage to the room involved.

A judge granted both suspects a $100,000 bond Thursday. As of Friday morning, they were still behind bars in the Charleston County Detention Center.
