Franklin County investigators say they've discovered more than 50 so-called "shake-and-bake" meth labs all inside one house.
Officials were called to the house Thursday on LP Bradford Road in Estill Springs, where they say they found 59 one-pot meth labs, 50 hydrogen chloride gas generators, 47 bags of lithium strips and more than 200 stripped lithium batteries.
There were also several empty packages of pseudoephedrine in the house, investigators said.
The meth bust could be among the biggest ever in Tennessee.
The home was apparently being rented out, and the person who owned it told police he had no idea this was happening inside.
The evidence will be presented to the grand jury for possible indictments.
