The Bryan County D.A. said one of the suspects confessed and told on his two friends after seeing the fire on the news. The teen admitted they had been drinking and lit toilet paper on fire inside the barracks.

A police affidavit stated Brandon Perkinson, Skylar Forster and Travis Taylor are facing charges ranging from breaking and entering to arson.

Park Superintendent Larry Marcy estimated the damage at about $2 million.
