A 7-year-old Juneau boy has admitted to starting five fires over a little more than four months, AP reported.
Juneau fire marshal Dan Jager said that the boy caused about $1,000 in damages by starting fires in restrooms at Harborview Elementary School and in the Terry Miller Legislative Building, plus a downtown grass fire and two fires at a Fred Meyer store.
"He has no idea how big the fires could have gotten," Jager said.
"He won't be going to jail," Fire Chief Richard Etheridge said. The case will however be forwarded to probation officers at the Johnson Youth Center.
