April 16, 2009

Two Alabama juveniles face arson and other charges after they admitted setting a weekend fire that destroyed fifteen antique vehicles.

Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin said the boys, ages 13 and 11, were charged as juveniles.

He said the blaze erupted at about 6 p.m. last Friday in a storage building in Mountainboro.

The boys told an investigator they smashed windows on all the vehicles and set one on fire. The flames gutted the building and the vehicles that included cars, a truck and a motorcycle.

Each boy was also charged with criminal mischief and burglary.

No motive was given.
