Teens allegedly start fire in home

Two Harrison teens may be facing home invasion and arson charges resulting from a house fire on Knollwood Street in Harrison May 4.

A release from the Clare County Sheriff’s Department said a possible house fire was reported in the Cranberry Lake Subdivision last Friday around 9:06 p.m.

Harrison Fire Department responded and found a throw rug burning inside the residence in the middle of the living room floor.

The Clare County Fire Investigator was called to the scene to determine the cause. Officers discovered that the home had been broken into and the fire deliberately set. Further investigation led officers to two 13-year-old boys who live nearby.

The teens were interviewed and a report will be submitted to Clare County Prosecutor Michelle Ambrozaitis requesting charges of Home Invasion and Arson of a Dwelling, the release said.

Both boys were turned over to their parents.
