FARMINGTON, Maine — Four people have been indicted in connection with a fire at an alleged methamphetamine lab in Kingfield.

Joshua Bartlett of North New Portland, David Coffren of Kingfield and Seth Hinkley of Strong were indicted on one felony count of arson each. Bartlett and Isaac Moody of Phippsburg were each indicted on a felony count of drug trafficking.

Evidence of the meth lab was found in the rubble of the mobile home after it burned to the ground on Feb. 8.

Investigators told the Sun Journal they believe residents of the home were using the highly risky “one pot” method to make the drug and that’s what sparked the blaze.

No one was hurt in the fire.
