KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - A 41-year-old Kalamazoo man accused of burning down an adult entertainment store allegedly told police he wanted to eradicate porn.

The fire broke out Wednesday afternoon at Hollywood Nights in Kalamazoo. Witnesses reported seeing a suspicious man with an axe leaving the scene before the store went up in flames.

Police say the suspect was arrested several hours later after a brief police chase. He allegedly admitted to the arson.

The man is currently being held in the Kalamazoo County Jail and is expected to be charged Friday.

No one was injured in the blaze.
