Teens charged for setting bush fire

Police have charged two teens with the offence of causing a nuisance after they allegedly set fire to grassland at Chancery Lane, Christ Church on Wednesday.

The 17-year old of Foul Bay, St. Philip and the 16-year-old of Worthing Road, Christ Church are due to appear at the Oistins Magistrates Court on Monday.

Lawmen say the two were charged today after investigations and interviews with residents, who complained about the effects of the fire.

    Put them both on the highway to weed grass, cut bush and pick up litter for 3 months with a sign on each of their backs saying “I will be a productive citizen and not a pest”.

    Don’t let them escalate into full blown arsonists! Teach them the law now. They need to pay for their crime. Suppose someone’s house was burned or someone died from this stupidity? It’s sad and scary.

    Lack of guidance in the household. Where are their parents? They need to be accountable also. Hope the teens will reflect on they actions and realise playing with matches is dangerous. Arson is a serious offence lives could of been lost. I totally agree with Veronica Straker comments.

    This type of thing will always happen when we do not provide young people like these,with adequate avenues with which to vent their energies. Like the old saying, the Devil finds work for idle hands.
    I am not one to cast the first or any stone at these young men, having been down that street.

    Let’s just thank god that no one did get hurt and that no ones house burned down.
    People can not hold the boys responsible for what MAY have happened. Only for what DID happen.
    It is very easy to speculate and in hindsight to condemn someone after something like this.
    People must stick to the facts and not speculate on the if’s and but’s.
    They clearly did not know what the extent of their actions would lead to.
    Ignorance is a sad thing. You can’t blame the parents for the actions of a child if that child chooses to go against what they are
    taught how can that be the parents fault?
    Children learn from their mistakes and although this is a terrible mistake on their part. I am very sure they now realise they did wrong and are very sorry.
