Two juveniles arrested for setting string of fires in Brainerd

Chattanooga fire investigators have announced they have caught two juveniles suspected of setting fires in the Brainerd area.

Capt. Anthony Moore with the fire investigation division said the two males — one 12 years old and the other 13 — were charged Monday. The 12-year-old was charged with a count of arson and six counts of setting fire to personal property while the other suspect was charged with a count of arson.

The two also faced a prohibited weapons charge for making a Molotov cocktail, Moore said.

A news release said the incidents began Sept. 1 when several cars were set afire and then in following days small fires were set in vacant houses, a shed and on some porches.
