 A Quincy man admitted to starting a fire while making meth during a court hearing Wednesday.

Donald McClelland pleaded guilty to aggravated participation in meth-manufacturing and burglary. He was sentenced to 18 years in federal prison.

Authorities say McClelland caused a flash fire May 16 after mixing chemicals at 517 Sycamore.

McClelland ran away after the fire started and was found in downtown Quincy five days later.
