THOMAS COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - Three juveniles in Thomas County are facing arson charges after a weekend house fire.

The three suspects are charged with second-degree arson and burglary.

This happened at a home in the 500 block of Main Street in Boston.

The suspects are believed to have started the blaze by setting a towel on fire and unsuccessfully putting it out.

Investigators say they received a tip about the case on Monday, leading to the arrests.

A neighboring trailer also caught fire from the heat.
