EUGENE, Ore. — The Lane County Sheriff’s Office says three teenage boys are responsible for a fire that damaged a mill in Creswell, Oregon.

The sheriff’s office says the boys — a 16-year-old and two 13-year-olds — are suspects in other recent fires in the community southeast of Eugene. They were booked into the Lane County Juvenile Justice Center on charges of arson, criminal mischief, reckless burning and burglary.

Sunday’s fire at Fore Lumber burned an office and warehouse. There were no injuries.
