From the Cedar Rapids area, two Marion High School students are charged after a disruption at a school dance. The kids are charged with arson for allegedly setting a fire at a school dance last month. Grant Furman and Benjamin Bush, both 16, are accused of lighting an unspecified homemade device and tossing it onto a dance floor that was occupied by 200 students. Although the device started a fire, authorities say the boys thought is would not ignite, and only wanted the device to smoke. No one was hurt in the incident. Damage was estimated at one thousand dollars. A decision has not been made on whether the boys will be charged as adults. School officials say both kids have since left the school.
