Essex police arrested a juvenile who they say intentionally started a fire at a residence Center Road last week, a news release Tuesday afternoon said.
The arrest comes six days after police received a report of a fire at 106 Center Rd. around 5:30 a.m. on January 3. An investigation showed the fire was started intentionally. No one was injured as a result, police said.
Police now say they’ve served a juvenile citation, but can’t release any further information due to the suspect’s age. The Vermont State Police arson unit assisted in the investigation.
