2 junior firefighters charged with arson

Two Rehoboth teens are arrested for felony arson.

The state Fire Marshal reports the 17- and 16-year-old boys set fire to a vacant home in the Tru Vale Acres community.

Investigators say the teens intentionally caused the blaze Friday, which caused $10,000 worth of damage to the dwelling.

The boys were reportedly junior members of the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company.

They were both charged with three felonies: arson, burglary and conspiracy.

The suspects were committed to the Stevenson House in lieu of $3,500 secured bond.
