State police charged 51 year old Roscoe Carlisle with third degree manufacture of methamphetamine following the fire at his 41250 Bearup Road home.

The blaze was first reported at around 5 a.m. as a fire with someone trapped inside. 

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

Investigators from the state Office of Fire Prevention and Control and Jefferson County Emergency Management Office are investigating the cause.

Carlisle was held without bail.
