Two Teens Charged With Burlington School Fire
BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) - Burlington police say two teenagers have been arrested for allegedly starting a fire at an elementary school.
Police say two 13-year-old boys were charged on Monday with second-degree arson. They're accused of starting a fire at Corse Elementary School on Sunday.
Firefighters responding to a fire alarm at the school discovered a fire on the roof and smoke in the hallways. The fire was quickly extinguished. Damage is estimated at less than $10,000.
