Leesburg--  Two Lee County boys are in trouble for setting a fire in an abandoned house and they've been linked to other crimes too. 

Police say an 11-year-old and a 14-year-old broke into this home on Fourth Street in Leesburg Wednesday afternoon. They set fire to some clothes.  Firefighters responded quickly and there was only minimal smoke damage. 

Leesburg Police Chief Charles Moore says,  "The house is an abandoned house. What we understand the day before the fire the boys went in and did a lot of damage kicking in the walls and throwing stuff around and then went back and they were playing around and they setclothes in a suitcase and the kitchen on fire."

The two boys have admitted to stealing from a business, a home and a few cars. They took mostly cell phones and cigarettes. The boys are facing arson, burglary and criminal damage charges.
