LA PINE, OR -- Two teens are accused of starting fires in La Pine State Park, last month. The first fire broke out June third, but was held at a quarter-acre. A second, smaller fire was reported within the burn area, June 28. 

 

Investigators determined the incidents were human caused, and the following day Department of Forestry crews conducting follow-up saw possible suspects in the area. The Sheriff’s Office and State Police responded and a deputy contacted a 14- and 16-year-old. 
 
Investigators say the two boys had built a fort in the area and were burning pine needles and other debris but failed to properly extinguish the fire before leaving the area. They were cited for Reckless Burning and Criminal Mischief.
