Our local hazmat expert indicated it was a “shake and bake” type of  lab according to Greenbrier Fire Chief Billy Wilson.

The Deerfield Inn is a smaller hotel and therefore the entire facility was evacuated immediately. The lab operator was nowhere to be found when authorities arrived. The room used was on the back side of the hotel which offered an easy escape route through an apartment complex behind the Inn.

IMG_9205Guests were starting to back up  on the road outside the hotel but officials indicate (now that the chemicals have been removed) the room must now be “cleaned”. It could be several hours,  perhaps later in the evening before guests will be able to get back to their rooms. Another thing delaying things was the Hazmat cleaning crew (Tennessee Methamphetamine Task Force) was coming in from Cookeville,  Wilson said.

One guest told Smokey that he was sound asleep when he was awoken to a bang on the door “We evacuating the hotel”. He didn’t even have a chance to grab his cell phone, he said.


A cat was also found in the room  hiding under a bed Wilson said.

Responding to the incident was the Greenbrier Police & Fire Departments, Robertson County Sheriff’s Office, Robertson County E.M.A, and Robertson County E.M.S.
