LEWISTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Since the three major apartment fires that displaced nearly 200 people in Lewiston, there have been two more juvenile fires, according to Lewiston Fire Investigator Paul Ouellette.

An 11-year-old boy attempted to set the dumpster behind D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches on Lisbon Street around 4:40 p.m. Friday, said Ouellette.

He said the boy told him he thought it was okay to set fires, after the three arsons in the city in the last three weeks. In two of the arsons, 12-year-old boys have been charged.

Ouellette said this Monday, a 13-year-old boy attempted to light an apartment buliding on Oxford Street on fire. He only scorched the walls in that building.

Both incidents are under investigation.
