The Cleveland bomb squad was called out to a home on the city's east side for a possible meth lab on Thursday, but police later ruled no meth lab was present.

Police originally believed a 4-year-old child and an adult were possibly exposed to meth, but both were taken to University Hospitals and treated for chemical exposure due to spilled cleaning supplies.

According to authorities, the home is on the 9000 block of Stewart Avenue. Both the bomb squad and the fire department were called up to investigate. Police closed the roads near East 91st Street and Stewart Avenue. The building where authorities believed the lab was allegedly located was evacuated.
