SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A Savannah teenager has been booked on
multiple arson charges for setting fire to five houses in the same
neighborhood.

Savannah Metro police and fire investigators said Tuesday the
charges stem from a series of arson fires on North Fernwood Avenue
between Feb. 4 and Feb. 6.

Arrested was a 16-year-old male, whose name was withheld due to
his age. Authorities said he could be charged as an adult. The boy
was charged with five counts of arson.

No one was injured in the blazes, but firefighters said one
house was set on fire twice in the same day.

No motive was given.
