JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Phillips Highway is back open Sunday night after the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office shut it down for several hours in afternoon while it investigated a possible meth lab at a nearby motel.

JSO investigators, the fire department, a HazMat team and a bomb squad responded to the Emerson Inn -- according to the Florida Times Union.

Investigators combed through the motel after getting a tip Sunday afternoon about a strong chemical odor coming from a room there.    

Two people inside the room -- where police say they found materials used to make meth -- have been taken into custody.
