Teens Arrested For Arson

Two teens arrested for vandalism at home of soldier's in-laws

Two teenage boys have been charged with arson and criminal mischief for setting fire to 20 small American flags under a car in Fairfield on Saturday.

Police say the teens apparently did not know that the flags were placed to honor Army Private First Class Tim Hines, whose funeral was Friday.

Hines died in a Washington hospital of injuries suffered last month in an explosion in Baghdad. The fire destroyed a car belonging to Hine's sister-in-law.

Police say it was a random act of vandalism by the 15- and 13-year-old, and that they were involved in similar acts that same morning.
