DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) A 13-year-old boy has been accused of starting a pair of fires at a shopping mall in northeast Iowa.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports Mitchel McArthur has been charged with first-degree arson and reckless use of fire.

Police say McArthur started a fire Dec. 15 at a Sears at the Kennedy Mall in Dubuque. No one was injured but damage is estimated at more than $100,000.

An investigation into the first fire led police to a second smaller incident at the mall. Police believe the fire was self-extinguished without causing damage.

The newspaper reports McArthur has been ordered to juvenile detention. He remains in custody.

Online records do not list an attorney for McArthur.
