A 14-year-old boy has been arrested on charges of arson and reckless endangerment after a fire at a townhome complex at 9298 W. Ontario Drive in South Jeffco, about a block east of Mr. Biggs entertainment center.
The fire started about 8 p.m. May 6 in a complex near Coal Mine Avenue and Kipling Parkway. The boy is suspected of starting an evergreen bush on fire with a lighter, and the fire spread to the townhomes.
Four families were displaced, two units were heavily damaged by fire, and one was condemned because of water damage. No one was seriously injured.
