    Three floors of an apartment building near the Virginia Square Metro were evacuated Monday night while crews cleared the scene of dangerous materials.

    Police have confirmed that a meth lab was being operated inside an Arlington apartment building near the Virginia Square Metro Station.

    Leonard Fischer, 44 and William Hudgens, 31, both of Arlington, have been charged with attempting to manufacture methamphetamine.

    Firefighters and hazmat crews were called to a building in the 800 block of N. Monroe Street just after 10 p.m. Monday. They were called after police were called there on a dispute, and saw items that were consistent with the making of methamphetamine.

    Residents of three floors were evacuated as a precaution, though everyone has since been allowed back in the building. Those on the same floor of the lab weren't allowed back in until about 5 a.m. Tuesday.

    Authorities continue to investigate.
