Two juveniles are facing charges for their involvement in an arson in Fairfield.
The Fairfield Police and the Fairfield Fire Department responded to a residence on Davis Road for a report of fire on Aug. 18. When responding units arrived, they discovered a 2005 Hyundai sedan vehicle in the driveway that was fully engulfed by fire.
Fairfield Police Officers were able to awaken the owner and confirm that the vehicle was hers and that it had been parked inside of the garage. The Fairfield Police Department contacted the State Fire Marshal’s Office and requested that we respond.
The scene was investigated by members of the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
The subsequent investigation led to the arrest of two 14 year old juveniles: One male and one female. The juveniles had broken into the garage and removed the vehicle and at some point set it on fire.
Both juveniles were charged with burglary and arson and released into the custody of their parents.
