    A weekend mobile home fire off Raccoon Lake resulted in a 49-year old Centralia man being arrested on methamphetamine allegations.

    David Wesley Millner, was formally charged this morning in Marion County Court with felony manufacture of less than 25 grams of meth and felony possession of meth manufacturing material.

    Centralia firefighters were called to the home in the 1600 block of Campfire Lane, for a fire believed to have started in a trash can on the back porch and spread throughout the home.

    The two occupants of the home, Millner and Debra Walker, were both home at the time of the fire and were reportedly using fire extinguishers to try and put out the blaze when firefighters arrived at the scene.

    The State Police Meth Response Team was called to clean up and collect evidence of the meth production.  While no official cause has been released on the fire, firemen were told there was some meth waste in the trash can where the fire is believed to have originated.

    According to online records, Millner remains in the Marion County Jail, with bail set at $50,000. Walker was questioned and released.
