Teen arrested for Plattsburgh fires

Posted: Updated:
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -

Police say a teenager is responsible for a pair of Plattsburgh fires last Friday.

Crews responded to a home on Lafayette Street at 4 a.m. for a fire on the exterior of the building. The strong smell of smoke woke the residents and they got out okay. Investigators suspected the fire had been intentionally set and believe it might be related to a car fire a few minutes earlier on Sanborn Avenue.

The investigation led police to Bruce Bombard, 17. He was arrested on two counts of arson and is being held for lack of $50,000 bail.
