Two Juveniles Arrested in Connection with Etowah County Fire

Contact: Ragan Ingram, Assistant Commissioner


Two juveniles were arrested Monday in connection with an arson at Chapman's Chapel in Glencoe.

A 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl have been taken into custody, having been charged with second-degree arson related to the Sunday morning fire in Etowah County.

The pair cannot be identified because of their ages.

"This was clearly unrelated to the other fires," State Fire Marshal Richard Montgomery said. "We will continue our work with the federal, state and local agencies working the other fires."
