Children May Be Responsible For Setting Apartment Fire

New information in a fire that destroyed a big section of a Lexington apartment building.

Fire investigators tell 27 NEWSFIRST that the juveniles who are suspected of causing the damage have been in trouble before for playing with fire.

Both suspects, who are under the age of 13, are expected to face arson charges in juvenile court.

Flames destroyed one building and caused heavy damage to two neighboring buildings at the apartment building on Osage Court on Monday night.

It took firefighters nearly an hour to get the fire under control. No one was hurt.

Fire officials tell 27 NEWSFIRST they've worked three to four small fires in that same area recently that they believe were also set by the same kids.

    This is why our lawmakers need to pass a bill the clearly identifies juveniles who commit crimes by name and picture. If you continue to coddle them, they won't get it. It's also apparent that these juveniles don't have much, if any, parental input to their lives. And don't give me the crap that it doesn't matter how much involvement parents have that kids will do what they want; that's garbage. Teach your kids discipline, responsibility and respect for others and their property and they will turn out fine.
