Local firefighters extinguished the fire and ventilated the smoke from the building. Deputies discovered the stolen items located inside the warehouse.

Turner implicated himself to deputies in the burglary of the building and stealing the van. Turner also stated he was attempting to burn the insulation off of the stolen wire.

Turner was arrested and charged with burglary of a building and telecommunication service theft.

As of Tuesday morning, Turner remained incarcerated. His bond had not been set.
