Centralia PD arrest 5 in connection with a suspicious fire

CENTRALIA, IL — Centralia Police arrested five juveniles Tuesday night in connection with a suspicious fire earlier this month at a vacant home in the  800 block of East Broadway. The juveniles were taken to the Marion County Jail before being transferred to the Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center where they await formal charges in Marion County Court.

A witness to the fire reported two people running from the home. Centralia City firefighters kept the fire confined to a bedroom of the home but smoke damage was throughout the structure.

The State Fire Marshal responded to the scene with an arson dog to assist in the investigation and Centralia police and fire conducted numerous interviews that ultimately led to the arrests.
