HAVERHILL, Mass. (AP) - Three of four teenagers charged with setting a blaze that destroyed an abandoned 130,000-square-foot mill in Haverhill will remain behind bars.

The Eagle-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1MNt1H0 ) Judge Jose Sanchez ruled Thursday that three teens are a danger to society and ordered them held without bail pending their next hearing. A fourth youngster was freed on several conditions.

The four boys, ages 14 through 16, were arraigned last week in juvenile court on charges including burning a building and breaking and entering. They are not identified because their cases are in juvenile court.

The blaze broke out Sept. 20 and leveled an empty five-story commercial building dating to the 19th century.
