Six Juveniles Charged with Arson

Six juveniles have been arrested in connection to the former Fancher Furniture building fire in Salamanca earlier this month.

The four boys and two girls, between the ages of 12 and 15, are all being charged with felony counts of arson, reckless endangerment, and burglary. They are also facing a misdemeanor assault charge.

Four firefighters were injured during the fire. None of the injuries were life threatening, and they were all were treated and released.

Four of the six were interviewed the weekend of the fire and confessed to starting it using aerosol spray paint cans and a lighter.

The District Attorney's Office says the juveniles will be tried in Family Court, which means they won’t be sent to jail. They could be sent to a youth detention facility for up to a year and be subjected to electronic monitoring.
