The teen, who was not identified by police, is being held at the Greene County Juvenile Detention Facility on aggravated arson, vandalism, and inducing panic charges.

While police said Tuesday that two juveniles were identified as suspects in the fire, Molnar announced Wednesday that there were no other suspects in the case.

“Evidence has shown that the juvenile acted alone in setting the fire,” Molnar said.

The fire caused the store near the Mall at Fairfield Commons to be closed Tuesday. It reopened today.
