Three Children Charged in City Arsons

July 19, 2016 |

By Jason Togyer | Posted in: Crime and Police News

Three children --- all under age 13 --- have been arrested by McKeesport police and charged in connection with two separate arsons in the city this month.

Another fire last week in a garage on Garbett Street is regarded as a possible arson, and investigators from the McKeesport police and Allegheny County fire marshal's office have developed leads in the case.

The blazes left McKeesport officials frustrated.

"We're in the schools every year to talk to these kids" about fires, McKeesport fire Chief Jeff Tomovcsik said. "They know what the consequences are, not just for them, criminally, but you're destroying people's property and risking the lives of your neighbors and the firefighters responding to the calls."
