A man has been accused of burning down an adult entertainment store in the region.

The fire broke out Wednesday afternoon at Hollywood Nights in Kalamazoo.

No one was injured in the blaze.

Witnesses reported seeing a suspicious man with an axe leaving the scene before the store went up in flames.

Police said the 41-year-old suspect from Kalamazoo was arrested several hours later after a brief police chase.

He allegedly admitted to the arson, telling police he wanted to eradicate porn.

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