11-year-old charged for fire
Ovid, N.Y. -- Seneca County sheriffs deputies arrested an 11-year-old boy for setting a fire that destroyed four buildings in Ovid last week.
Investigators said the boy admitted to playing with a lighter March 18 when he accidentally set garbage on fire behind the New Dragon Chinese Restaurant.
When the boy tried to put out the fire, investigators said it spread and he ran away. The fire grew when flames spread to nearby propane tanks.
Police charged the boy, whose name was not released, with fourth-degree arson.
