Two Aurora Teens Charged With Setting Fire
Two Aurora teenagers are charged with intentionally setting fire to Aurora's historic Fidelity Building. Deputy Hamilton County Attorney Ross Luzum says 15-year-old Darrin Enderle and 14-year-old Jason Galvin were charged Tuesday in juvenile court.
Luzum says the language in the charge is the same as second-degree arson, a felony when filed in adult criminal court. The teenagers had already confessed to starting the fire. The three-story building was destroyed by flames on July 10.
It was built in 1905, occupying a prominent spot on Aurora's downtown square. Fire officials say the building was valued at more than $87,000 and is a total loss.
