HARRISBURG, IL (KFVS) -

A Harrisburg man faces charges after police say he started a fire that burned two vacant trailers and stopped up the bathroom at the Saline County Detention Center.

Daniel Robert Roark, 61, is charged with arson.

Police say it happened early Saturday morning on South Granger Street.

Then, police say Roark is accused of going to the Saline County Law Enforcement and Detention Center lobby, stopping up the men's bathroom with paper towels, turning on the water and leaving it.

The water damaged caused damage to the nearby Saline County State's Attorney's Office, the small courtroom and pooled water on the tile floor of the lobby.
