Four children are being questioned in connection with suspected arson over the weekend where a garage was destroyed and a nearby building was damaged.
Witnesses told Muncie Police that four children between the ages of 8 and 11, were seen near the structure in the 1800 block of West 6th Street right before the fire started just before 8pm Saturday night.
The garage and its contents were reportedly destroyed and the fire had spread next door damaging another garage.
No one was injured in the blaze.
Muncie Police are in the process of questioning all four children. At least one witness stated they were either playing with matches or fireworks.
