Teen declared delinquent after in fire at warehouse complex

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — A teenager charged with arson in a fire that swept a vacant warehouse complex in western Indiana nearly four months after another blaze damaged the same site has been declared a delinquent child.

Two teens were arrested following the Aug. 11 fire near Terre Haute’s Coy Park. They were reportedly both at the building and one started the fire. No one was injured.

The teen charged with arson requested a speedy trial and a judge conducted a bench trial Thursday. Sentencing is scheduled for October.

The other teen faces a pending trespass charge.

The warehouses are on the city’s north side. Fire crews responded to a fire at the same complex April 28. Investigators have said they don’t believe the teens are responsible for that fire.
