Juvenile arson suspects in custody after caught setting fires

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Fire Marshal's Office reports that two, male juveniles were taken into custody Thursday evening accused in a fire setting spree during the afternoon.  The two were under the surveillance of two fire marshals that witnessed the arson and intercepted them as they fled the scene. Both juveniles face multiple counts of second degree felony arson. 

The fires were set in the residential area north of 19th Street between Slide Road and Chicago Avenue.  Deputy Fire Marshal Robert Loveless also reports that both teenagers confessed to several other fires over the previous two months. Loveless says additional charges are expected against the two, but it is unclear how many fires they're responsible for. 

Anyone with information regarding any fire is urged to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
