Teen arrested in Toledo arson fire case

Toledo firefighters have been busy responding to vacant house fire in the past months.

A 15-year-old boy is in custody in connection with a case of arson.

Investigators say the teen was caught running from a fire at a home on Oak Street near Nevada in East Toledo on Sunday.

Police reportedly found a lighter in the teen's pocket.

There is no word on if the teen has been charged.

Officials do not expect that the teen is to blame for the more than 80 arson fires in Toledo over the past several months, they are still asking for the community's help in solving those.
