Around 100 cannabis plants have been discovered following a house fire in Boston.
Our Force Control Room received a call from Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue to a report of a fire at a house in Witham Street, Boston, at 5.41pm on Monday, 25 September.
Emergency services attended and located around 100 cannabis plants growing over the three floors of the property.
The house was made safe by fire and rescue and Western Power.
Our officers remain at the scene and investigations are ongoing. No arrests have been made and no one was injured.
Detective Inspector Kara Nicholson said: "We are appealing for anyone with any information to call us in relation to this find. Cannabis production is far from being harmless: it is often linked to wider, organised criminality which is why tackling the wider issue of drug supply is one of our key priorities.
"Lincolnshire Police remains determined to crack down on criminal enterprises and remove drugs from circulation."
