PASCAGOULA -- Two teenagers have been arrested, accused of setting fires at Pascagoula's recreation complex. 

 

City police told WLOX-TV that the teenagers -- both 15 years old -- were arrested Tuesday on charges of burglary, arson and malicious mischief. 

 

Police said Thursday that the teenagers admitted breaking into the complex's concession stand Saturday afternoon, setting fire to a trash can and a table in the press box. 

 

Darcie Crew, director of the Parks and Recreation Department, says the damage is estimated at about $800. 

 

Police say the pair also put mulch and sticks in to the diesel tank of a county tractor kept at the facility. 

 

Because of their age, their names were not released. It was not immediately known whether they remained in custody.
