FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Drug officers have found two suspected methamphetamine labs in North Pole homes.

Alaska State Troopers said the portable labs were found in the basements of the homes on Thursday. Troopers said officers dismantled the highly toxic and flammable meth labs.

Sgt. J.R. Roberts, who heads the local multi-agency statewide drug enforcement unit, said workers with the Division of Family and Youth Services joined the officers at one of the homes. He said the DFYS workers took custody of a child at the home while officers talked to the child's mother.

Neither of the labs was active at the time of the raids, according to troopers.

Roberts said no arrests have been made. He said samples taken from the suspected labs have not yet been analyzed.
