RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Rapid City police have identified two juvenile suspects in a grass fire that blackened more than 13 acres in the city in mid-July.

The two 11-year-olds likely will face charges of reckless burning in juvenile court. Police say one of them also was responsible for another fire in April.

No structures burned in the July fire on what is known as M Hill, and no one was hurt. But the blaze shut down a popular hiking spot and a park and sent smoke over the city.
