Hahira - Three juveniles are arrested for torching a South Georgia school.

The old Hahira Middle School was gutted by fire early Sunday morning. Tuesday night, three young boys, ages 12, 13, and 15, were taken into custody for starting the blazes. "All the agencies involved worked well together to solve this and as far as the neighbors of Hahira and the citizens that went to school at this establishment, they really wanted to solve this case," said Dwight Bennett, Fire Chief. "We put forth every effort to bring a quick conclusion to it."

The juveniles are being held in the Youth Detention Center in Thomasville. They're charged with first degree arson and burglary.

The 72-year-old school had been vacant for several years, but the city had plans to use it for office space.
