3 teens ar­rested in up­state NY high school field house fire

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Three teens have been ar­rested on ar­son and bur­glary charges for an up­state New York high school field house fire that de­stroyed $70,000 worth of ath­letic equip­ment.

The field house at Notre Dame-Bishop Gib­bons High School in Sch­enec­tady was de­stroyed in the early morn­ing blaze on Oct. 21.

Three teens, ages 17, 18 and 19, were to be ar­raigned in city court Fri­day. It could not im­me­di­ately be de­ter­mined if they had lawyers.

School of­fi­cials say re­plac­ing the sports equip­ment could cost $70,000 or more while re­build­ing the field house could cost $500,000.

The fire prompted an out­pour­ing of sup­port and do­na­tions from the com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing sev­eral other high school foot­ball teams.
