43-year-old Timothy Cheskie, of Morris, was arrested by Morris police Monday in connection with a fire that destroyed a business in the 1300 block of East Street earlier in the day. Cheskie has been charged with arson.

Morris Fire Chief Tracy Steffes says the building, which houses Protak LLC, is a total loss.

No one was hurt. Steffes says the main goal was to keep the blaze from spreading to nearby buildings.

Several area fire departments were on scene including Coal City, Minooka, Channahon, and more.
