Four teens charged with arson

Four teenagers suspected of setting 20 arson fires since the end of June behind businesses in the area of Sprague Avenue and Sullivan Road and at Central Valley High School were arrested this week. All the fires were set in Dumpsters, trash cans, recycling bins and recycling donation boxes.

“All of these were late night, very early morning fires,” said Spokane Valley Fire Department Assistant Fire Marshal Bill Clifford. “Sometimes there were as many as three fires in one night.”

The incident at the school involved six garbage cans set on fire at 3:22 a.m. on Sunday. Most of the Dumpsters and other containers were destroyed, Clifford said. Their value is estimated at more than $16,000.

All four teens are facing second-degree arson charges and have been booked into the Spokane County Juvenile Detention Center.
