WAYNESBOROPA - Waynesboro Police say two people are facing multiple charges in connection to a home explosion and fire Monday night. 

Police say Logan Tyler Buchanan, of Lemasters, Pa., and Josie Lee McCormick, of Waynesboro, Pa., are charged with intent to manufacture methamphetamines, operation of a methamphetamine laboratory and risking a catastrophe.

The fire happened at the intersection of East Main Street and Grant Street around 8 p.m. on Monday.

The explosion shut down West Main Street between Potomac Street and Fairview Avenue for hours Monday night while Hazmat crews with the Pennsylvania State Police investigated. 

Officials say a search of the residence resulted in the discovery of chemicals and precursors used in the illicit manufacture of methamphetamines.

Police say the two suspects, Buchanan and McCormick, were the only people in the home at the time of the fire. They were taken to the Waynesboro Hospital with minor injuries. They have since been treated. 

The house had multiple residents and the family who lived on the second floor has been displaced. One Waynesboro Police Officer was treated for smoke inhalation and released following treatment. 

Buchanan and McCormick are both being held at the Franklin County Jail.
