Investigators are looking for a man they say is responsible for a meth lab fire inside an apartment in Jamestown.

Flames broke out November 20 on Prendergast Avenue in Jamestown because police say Christopher Swanson, 43, was making meth in the upper apartment. The fire caused extensive damage to the second floor.

Swanson sustained burns as a result of the fire, but fled before police arrived. He is wanted on a felony warrant for unlawfully manufacturing meth.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, call Jamestown Police at 716-483-8477. All calls are confidential.
