Two teenagers have been arrested and charged with setting fire to a vacant house in Cedar Rapids. The home was damaged by last year’s flooding and has been vacant. Fire fighters were called to the home at about five o’clock on Friday, July 10th. They found a fire on the second floor of the home.
A 14-year-old and a 15-year-old on Tuesday were charged with second degree arson — a felony. Investigators say the two teens poured gasoline on mattresses in a bedroom and set them on fire.
