CELINA, Tenn. - Authorities in Clay County have arrested two men they believe are responsible for setting a fire late last week that destroyed Celina's city hall.
Arson investigators said the fire began around 2 a.m. Friday in a back room of city hall and spread to the entire building within minutes.
Deputies took 20-year-old Justin Spivey and 23-year-old Ronald Camp into custody Monday.
Sources tell News 2 evidence obtained at the scene Friday morning led to the arrests.
Decades worth of documents were destroyed in the fire, in addition to valuable evidence.
"It is devastating to all of us here because, you know, [there were] records upstairs that had been there for 40, 50, 60 years," Celina Mayor Buddy Thompson told News 2.
Police would not go into details about Monday's arrests, citing an ongoing investigation.
Camp and Spivey are each charged with three counts aggravated arson, one count burglary and one count theft.
They are scheduled to make their first court appearance on July 10 at 9 a.m. and remain in the Clay County jail on $500,000 bond.
