Four teens arrested in arson at Laurel school

Four teens have been charged with arson in connection with a classroom fire at Deerfield Run Elementary School earlier this summer, Prince George's County fire officials announced this week.

The incident occurred at about 6:10 p.m. on June 30 at Deerfield Run Elementary School in the 13000 block of Laurel Bowie Road, according to officials. Officials say the fire was extinguished and investigators determined the cause was incendiary.

On Aug. 15, officials from the Fire Marshal's office charged three 13-year-old boys and one 15-year-old boy with one count each of first- and second-degree arson and first- and second-degree malicious burning.

The teens were not identified by fire officials.
