YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – Three teenage boys have been arrested for setting a three-alarm fire that displaced 23 people and injured two firefighters last month.
Police said two 15-year-olds and a 14-year-old were identified through the surveillance camera photos they released to the media.
The video shows the three teens entered 330 East Poplar Street through a rear door before setting the October 21 fire and fleeing east on Fulton Alley.
The fire destroyed four row homes, causing $300,000 in damage. The injured firefighters were treated at a hospital and released.
Police said the boys frequently hung out together behind the home they burned. They are charged with arson, risking a catastrophe, and criminal mischief.
Police did not release their names because they are charged as juveniles.
