WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A 51 year old Plessis man has admitted to making meth after a fire at his home last month.

Roscoe Carlisle pleaded guilty Wednesday in Jefferson County Court to a felony count of third degree manufacture of methamphetamine.

He faces six months in jail when he’s sentenced August 7.

Roscoe was arrested following a May 7 fire at his 41250 Bearup Road home.

The blaze was first reported as a fire with someone trapped inside.

State police said Carlisle was hiding in the attic when firefighters arrived. He was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.

Troopers said items commonly used to make meth were found in the home and near the location of the fire.
