UPDATE: Vancouver Police Say Meth Lab Did Not Cause Van That Crashed To Ignite

The Vancouver Police Department has Tweeted that gasoline, not a meth lab, caused a van to ignite after it crashed into a wall this afternoon.

They also apologized to Breaking Bad fans.

EARLIER: The Toronto Globe and Mail reports a van carrying chemicals and equipment consistent with a meth lab crashed into a wall and burst into flames in Vancouver.

Police said they could not absolutely confirm that meth was being produced in the van, but had the area evacuated anyway and brought in a hazmat team.

It wasn’t clear if there were any injuries.
