2 teens arrested for fire at AR grammar school

(AP) - Authorities in Rogers have arrested two 13-year-old boys for a fire at Jones Elementary School and another alleged arson in the area.

Police identified the boys Thursday after viewing a recording from a school surveillance tape.

Fayetteville television station KHOG reports the boys are charged with two felony counts of arson, one count of attempted arson and 10 counts of criminal mischief.

1 of the fires at a press box at the Jones Elementary athletic field. The other was at a private home. Police say more charges could be filed.

The teenagers are also accused of attempting to start a vehicle fire and the criminal mischief charges are from instances of spray-painted graffiti.

Police say the damages total more than $15,000.

The boys weren't named because they are juveniles.
