Boys suspected of arson in church fire

Temple Terrace, Florida --  Two young boys are being questioned in regard to a fire that occurred Tuesday evening at a Temple Terrace church.

On April 16, the Temple Terrace Fire Department responded to a fire call at 9:19 p.m. at the Perfected Love International Fellowship. 

Firefighters arrived to find flames on the roof the storefront facility, said Temple Terrace Fire Chief Keith Chapman. The fire, which caused an estimated $4,500 in damage to the facility's roof and sign, was extinguished quickly, with no injuries reported.

The boys, both 12-year-old Temple Terrace residents, were found standing around a separate rubbish fire behind the building, and they were detained for questioning.

The State Fire Marshal's Office was called in to investigate. Preliminary findings indicate arson was the cause of the blaze, officials said.

Arson charges may be filed against both youngsters, pending further investigation, officials said. 

The boys are in the custody of their parents, pending charges. The State Fire Marshal's Office is continuing to investigate.
