Teens face arson charges in South Austin house fire

Posted: Updated:

Two 14-year-old boys are facing felony arson charges for a fire that destroyed a South Austin home.

Firefighters were called to the 3300 block of Paisano Trail on March 11.

The fire caused $90,000 in damage.

Fire investigators say they were about to suspend the investigation, when they received more information on the Texas arson hotline.

They say both boys admitted to starting the fire.

Fire officials say the fires started in a downstairs microwave and upstairs.

If convicted, the boys could face between five and 99 years of incarceration.
