Chattanooga fire investigators have announced they have caught two juveniles suspected of setting fires in the Brainerd area.
Capt. Anthony Moore with the fire investigation division said the two males — one 12 years old and the other 13 — were charged Monday. The 12-year-old was charged with a count of arson and six counts of setting fire to personal property while the other suspect was charged with a count of arson.
The two also faced a prohibited weapons charge for making a Molotov cocktail, Moore said.
A news release said the incidents began Sept. 1 when several cars were set afire and then in following days small fires were set in vacant houses, a shed and on some porches.
