FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) - A man arrested after investigators found the remnants of a methamphetamine-cooking lab in the rubble of his Kingfield mobile that had burned down has been sent to prison for eight years. 

David Coffren was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in June to charges including aggravated trafficking, aggravated criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child. 

The 29-year-old Coffren was charged with child endangerment because his young child was in the home at the time. 

The Sun Journal reports that sentencing was postponed until Coffren successfully completed a substance abuse counseling program. 

Investigators believe residents of the home were using the risky "one pot" method to make the drug and that's what sparked the February 2012 blaze. 

Two other men were also charged.
