July 19, 2010

Vermont State Police say they’ve charged two teenagers with arson in a Memorial Day fire that gutted a century-old bank building in Barre.

Seventeen-year-old Nathan Witham and 16-year-old Jessica Delary, both of Barre, are charged with second-degree arson in the fire, which broke out on the third floor of an unoccupied former Key Bank building. The building had recently been purchased by Barre Mayor Thomas Lauzon.

Police said Thursday the two were being held on unrelated charges at the Essex County Jail, in Lewis, N.Y.
