KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Police have arrested two teenagers accused of starting a fire that severely burned a historic building in Kalispell.

The Flathead Beacon reports (https://bit.ly/1vtrI9O ) the 15-year-old and 16-year-old boys from Marion were arrested Tuesday on a charge of arson. They are being held at a juvenile detention center.

Crews responding to a structure fire Monday afternoon found a garage engulfed in flames. The garage was the original carriage house for the main residence and was used as a cold storage building.

The building was constructed in 1903 and is listed in Kalispell’s historic registry.

Kalispell fire officials say the garage appears to be a total loss.
