Kids arrested for arson
Evansville Police say two children, ages 8 and 13 face arson charges after a vacant house caught fire at 957 East Blackford, near Kentucky Avenue, and the flames spread to two vacant houses next door. Detectives say the two admitted to lighting paper on fire, starting the blaze shortly after 4 Tuesday afternoon. Fire Investigator Jesse Storey says neighbors saw the boys leaving the house where the fire began, and running down an alley shortly before flames were visible. The fires took almost 90-minutes to tap out, but no one was injured.
