Los Alamos Police report that three local boys ranging in age from 10 to 12 are implicated in three small fires started today at the Los Alamos Horse Stables on North Mesa.
One of the boys has confessed and all three boys have been referred to the juvenile probation officer.
Police began investigating the fires that broke out within minutes of each other this afternoon.
“It seems too much of a coincidence in the way the fires broke out and the close proximity to each other,” Capt. Randy Foster said earlier today. “The largest of the three fires grew to about 10 feet by 10 feet in size.”
Foster added that the fires were put out quickly and no animals or property were harmed.
