Teens Detained for Daycare Fires

Two teenagers have been accused of being behind a series of fires in the southern Swedish city of Skövde.

Between mid-August and mid-September seven buildings burned in Skövde, including five daycare centers. Insurance experts put the value of the destruction at more than 7 million dollars. No one was injured in the blazes, which were all at night.

The teens in custody are 15 and 16 years old. Another 15 year old was questioned and then released, and the investigation continues.
