A Knoxville woman is behind bars after police say a meth lab in her van caught fire.

On Wednesday, just after 3:00 pm, Knoxville Police and firefighters were called to van on fire in the parking lot of a business on Maryville Pike.

When the fire was out, firefighters discovered a large amount of chemicals and equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine.

Investigators believe a pot that was being used to cook meth ruptured, and caught the interior of the van on fire, which quickly spread.

Deanna Fisher, 31, was arrested at the scene and charged with one count of Initiation of Process to Manufacture Methamphetamine and served with an outstanding failure to obey court order warrant.

She is being held on a $10,000 bond.
