LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Police arrested four teenagers they say are responsible for several fires set in Logan.

Police say the teens set fire to a cardboard recycling bin the parking lot of a Smith's Food and Drug Tuesday night.

When officers responded they found two of the four boys involved and they confessed to the fire.

Three of the teens have also been charged with two fires set last week.

One of those fires caused more than $30,000 in damage to a Lowe's Home Improvement store when wooden pallets behind the store were ignited last Friday.

While crews responded to the Lowe's fire a second blaze was reported in a Dumpster. That fire caused minor damage.

The teens have been charged with two counts of arson for allegedly sparking the fires. They will face a second-degree felony count of arson for their reported involvement in the Lowe's fire. If convicted they could also be ordered to pay restitution including the cost of fighting the fires.
