• Mark A. Clough, 46, of the 300 block of West Spring Street, South Elgin, appeared in Kane County bond court Tuesday on charges of arson, a felony, according to court records. Elgin police responded to a fire just before 10 p.m. April 28 at Advance Engineering Corp., 440 S. McLean Blvd., and an arson investigator determined the fire could not have started on its own, police said. After several interviews Clough admitted to using a lighter to ignite the wrapping on a section of pipe in the building, costing the company $46,000 to reverse the damages. Bail was set at $30,000 and Clough was ordered to take a risk assessment, which means he must pay 10 percent of the bond amount to leave jail while his case is pending, but only if results of the risk assessment are in his favor. Clough's next court date is May 22 in St. Charles.
