Cordele-- Two teens are charged with setting a fire that destroyed half a city block.

Fire Safety Commissioner John Oxendine made the announcement in front of the historic downtown Cordele buildings damaged in last month's fire.

Fifteen and 16-year-old boys were arrested at their homes.

The teens were linked to the fire after other investigations in the area. Fire Chief Dwayne Orrick says, "It just came down to good police work of linking them back to some other break-ins of cars and some burglaries in this same block."

The teens are being held at the Y.D.C. in Eastman and will make their first appearance in juvenile court March 16th.

They're charged with two counts of first degree arson, plus one count each of burglary and criminal damage. The fire destroyed a church and used furniture store.
