HERE­FORD » Po­lice say they have charged a ju­ve­nile with ar­son after a fire broke out late last year at a Here­ford Post Of­fice.

Au­thor­i­ties have charged a ju­ve­nile male with ar­son in re­la­tion to a Christ­mas Day fire that was re­ported at Here­ford Post Of­fice, at the in­ter­sec­tion of South Route 100 and South Route 29, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from Penn­syl­va­nia State Po­lice.

After the fire was de­ter­mined to be an ar­son, the in­ves­ti­ga­tion be­gan fo­cus­ing on a ju­ve­nile male in his late teens. Po­lice have not iden­ti­fied the ju­ve­nile be­cause of his age, but said that he ul­ti­mately ad­mit­ted to be­ing re­spon­si­ble for start­ing the fire that sig­nif­i­cantly dam­aged the build­ing.

The ju­ve­nile is be­ing charged with ar­son, reck­lessly en­dan­ger­ing an­other per­son and crim­i­nal mis­chief.
