NATIONAL PARK, N.J. (AP) - Investigators say a video posted on Facebook led to the arrests of two southern New Jersey brothers accused of setting fire to a vacant mobile home.

Gloucester County prosecutors say 22-year-old Anthony Pettolina of Gloucester City and 30-year-old Gerald Pettolina of Westville were each charged with arson, aggravated arson, criminal mischief and burglary. Bail for each brother was set at $100,000 and it wasn’t known if either man had retained an attorney.

No injuries were reported in the blaze in National Park, which was discovered around 12:45 a.m. Saturday by a police officer who was driving through the area.

Investigators say a video posted on Anthony Pettolina’s Facebook page allegedly showed the brothers in the mobile home before it was burned. It also showed one of them lighting a fire.
