NORWICH, Conn. (AP) - Authorities say five boys have been arrested in connection with two fires in Norwich last month.

Police say four 13-year-olds and a 12-year-old face charges that include second-degree arson and first-degree criminal mischief.

Police say the most recent blaze happened at a building on Oct. 24. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries. A fire at a vacant mill building occurred on Oct. 23. No injuries were reported.

Fire officials say both downtown buildings are vacant and had no power. The city fire marshal’s office determined the blazes were arson.

The youths are scheduled to appear in court next week.
