A young Tennessee boy has been arrested for allegedly setting a series of fires to a neighborhood home while people were inside.

The 11-year-old, whose name has not been released because of his age, was charged Monday with aggravated arson and setting fire to personal property for allegedly setting the fires in his Chattanooga neighborhood, the Chattanooga Fire Department said in a release that day.

The young boy is believed to have attempted to set fire to a house, which is not his residence, and successfully caused a car fire as well as a nearby dumpster fire, according to investigators with CFD.

The fire department found a fire in the back of a car parked in a Maude Street home’s driveway, which CFD managed to extinguish though it still damaged the vehicle.

Fire personnel also managed to put out the small fire they found in a trash can which was set up against that very house, which was occupied at the time.
