Licking County officials say that a juvenile has been charged with two counts of arson in an April fire.

The fire at  1406 Seven Hills Road in Hanover, April 17, took place at an unoccupied house and out-building owned by the Longaberger Company.

Through interviews Licking County Fire Investigator Phil Winland said he determined a 16-year-old male and possibly two other teens were involved.

The 16-year-old, from the Hanover area, has been charged with two counts of arson, one for the home and one for the out-building.

He’s awaiting further hearings in the Licking County Juvenile Court. An investigation is pending into others that may have been involved.
