According to a press release from the Maine Department of Safety, two juveniles have been arrested for an arson that took place in Fairfield earlier this month.

The incident reportedly happened early in the morning of August 18th.  Fairfield first-responders were called to a report of fair at a David Road residence.  Upon arrival, they found a 2005 Hyundai sedan fully engulfed in flames.  Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident.

Following an investigation by the state fire marshal's office, two 14 year olds (one male, one female) were arrested for the crime.
