MEXICO, Mo. - A man was taken into custody two days after a storage facility in Mid-Missouri goes up flames.

Firefighters spent more than four hours at the scene early Monday in Mexico, Mo. Most of the 18 units off South Olive were damaged.

Officials called in the State Fire Marshals office to investigate the possible arson. They later arrested the suspect, Larry Skinner, Wednesday night in Centralia.

Skinner rents one of the units. He was taken to the Audrain County jail.
