Two teens accused of starting grass fires

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Two teenagers have been accused of setting two small grass fires in Pauls Valley, one near a school attended by by one of the youths.

The male teenagers, 14 and 15, went on a joy ride in a borrowed vehicle and started the fires Sunday night and early Monday morning, according to police reports.

Firefighters were able to get the first fire under control at Whitebead School's football field late Sunday night, when they received a second call about a fire near the field and state Highway 19.

Meanwhile, police received a call about an SUV in the area. When authorities found the vehicle, the two teens were inside. Authorities also found a lighter on the passenger side between the seat and the floor, according to reports.

The 14-year-old driver was cited for operating a vehicle without a valid license and the 15-year-old teen has acknowledged setting the fire by his school, reports said.

The case was turned over to juvenile officials and the teens' parents signed a fire report that included a $300 charge because local firefighters were forced to make runs twice to extinguish the blazes, according to reports.
