TUCSON - Tucson Police Thursday arrested 3 kids for starting several fires on the East Side.

They are 11 and 12 years old, so their names are not being published in this report.

Since April 16, the Tucson Fire Department and arson detectives have responded to more than 20 different calls near Wilmot Road and 22nd Street.

On May 12, police identified the kids after 7 fires.

They face felony charges for Reckless Burning and Arson of Property.

It does not appear they caused any major property damage, but a man's fence burned and some park bushes burned.
