Juveniles are believed to be responsible for arson fire.

A few juveniles thought it would be a good idea to set a house on fire Saturday afternoon. Around 7 p.m., the City Of Orange Fire Department responded to 515 Knox Ave., in Orange, in reference to a smoke emitting from a vacant house.

According to witnesses on the scene, a few juveniles were seen going inside of the house right before it was set on fire.

Firefighters immediately responded to the scene and found a bed room smoking. The smoke was quickly extinguished.

The home was vacant and had no electricity and the evidence on scene showed signs of arson.

The case remains under investigation by the City Of Orange Fire Marshal.
