SANDSTONE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Two 14-year-old boys accused of setting fires that destroyed an unoccupied house and a barn on a Jackson-area school district’s property have been expelled from school.

The fires happened Oct. 13 in Jackson County’s Sandstone Township at structures owned by Western School District.

No one was injured.

The two boys face juvenile charges of arson, while a third 14-year-old boy is charged with burglary. They all were Western High School students. The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports (https://bit.ly/1BTVGI1 ) that the two charged with arson were expelled on Thursday.

The other boy has served a suspension and is back in school. Officials say the fire-damaged house will be demolished and debris from the barn has been cleared.
