Teens Charged in Otis St. Warehouse Fire

Two teenagers have been charged with causing the five-alarm fire that destroyed a large warehouse on Otis Street back in March.

Rochester's Arson Task Force says the 14- and 15-year-olds were among a group of three juveniles who broke into the warehouse and started the fire by pouring a flammable liquid over a pillow and lighting it on fire.

The fire spread out of control, requiring a massive response from the Rochester Fire Department and other area departments.

Both teens have been issued appearance tickets for family court.

The third suspect is just eight years old, and he was turned over to his parents.

He cannot be charged under New York Law.
