Authorities say arson was to blame for a small grass fire that damaged some landscaping outside an East Davis apartment complex Thursday afternoon.
Bruce Fry, division chief for the Davis Fire Department, said a maintenance worker at the Windmere Apartments, 3030 Fifth St., saw the fire being lit at about 3 p.m. in a grassy area south of the building. The fire caused about $200 in losses but no structural damage or injuries, Fry said.
Several juveniles were spotted leaving the scene, according to Davis police Lt. Glenn Glasgow. Two were described as Latino males between 12 and 14 years old, 5 feet tall and 100 pounds, last seen wearing white T-shirts.
Both suspects were seen with a Latina girl, also described as being between 12 and 14 years old, Glasgow said.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Davis Police Department at 530-747-5400, or the Davis Fire Department at 530-757-5684.
