Teenager accused of arson

December 15, 2003

Tifton - A teenager is arrested for setting his relative's house on fire.

Shaunda Paulhill's home on Old Omega Road in Tifton was set on fire Sunday morning. Deputies say a 16-year-old boy used a cigarette lighter to set a teddy bear on fire in the bedroom closet.

Paulhill escaped without injury, but the inside of her home was destroyed by fire and smoke.

The teenager was charged with arson and is being held at the Regional Youth Detention Center.
