TY TY, GA (WALB) - A man who spent months recovering from an explosion in his Tift County home has been charged with making methamphetamines.

39-year-old Melvin Keith Griffin spent months at an Augusta Burn Center with burns on 60 percent of his body.

On May 28th firefighters were called to his mobile home on Pines Drive in Ty Ty at 3:00 AM where a meth lab had exploded and set his home on fire.

He's now out of the hospital and facing criminal charges. Griffin was also wanted in Dougherty County for making methamphetamine.
