NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police say the two people hurt after an early morning house fire Tuesday were allegedly involved in cooking meth at the home.

Roger Dale Ferrell, 41, and his wife, Mary Vera, 42, were burned when components in the meth-making process combusted in a flash fire at the home on Clovernook Drive around 3:35 a.m.

Ferrell is expected to be released from Vanderbilt University Medical Center later Tuesday and will be arrested on a charge of manufacturing meth, police said.

Vera remains in critical condition, and a meth arrest warrant against her has been issued.

Vera's sons, 21-year-old Christopher Chet McCormick and 24-year-old David Henry Horwedel, were inside the house at the time but were not injured in the fire. They are now charged with manufacturing meth and remain jailed on $100,000 bond each.

Police found several pistols and long-barrel guns inside the home, which were seized.

The home will be quarantined until the owner pays for professional decontamination, police said.
