Richland County, SC (WLTX) - Authorities responded to an apartment fire that is believed to have been caused from manufacturing methamphetamine Saturday night.

According to deputies, the Columbia Fire Department responded to apartments on the 7600 block of Hunt Club Road around 6:30 p.m. regarding a suspicious fire.
