Two firefighters have been arrested on charges of setting fire to a Manhattan firehouse. The Fire Department says the two men, who didn't work at the firehouse where the fire was set, face felony charges of arson, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.
The Fire Department says the men are accused of using a flammable liquid to set an apparatus door on fire at Engine 34 in Manhattan. A firefighter on the scene saw smoke entering the firehouse and alerted on-duty firefighters, who extinguished the flame.
The Fire Department is not releasing any information on why the men may have set the fire. No information was immediately available on their lawyers
