BUFORD - Gwinnett County Fire Investigators Thursday said they believe two young teen boys are responsible for last Sunday's fire that damaged a vacant home in Buford.<br />
Investigators said they discovered the two boys had been trying to use the house as a clubhouse and had made a torch to see in the dark.<br />
Authorities believe material from the torch dropped to the floor and started a small fire. The boys thought they had stomped the fire out, according to investigators, and continued exploring the house.<br />
While they were in the basement, authorities said the teens discovered the fire had spread on the first floor. Investigators said they escaped injury.<br />
Each boy was charged with one-count of criminal damage to property in the second-degree, and released to their parents, according to Gwinnett County Fire Captain Tommy Rutledge.<br />
Investigators said they decided on the charge because they don't think the boys had malicious intent to cause the fire or to damage the property.<br />
Authorities had to block Highway 20 for a short time while they battled the Sunday afternoon fire.
