Two younger boys have been arrested after allegedly setting a home on fire in the NSW southern tablelands.
Police will allege the youngsters, aged 14 and 13, doused the home in an accelerant earlier than setting it alight and hurling a desk by means of a window.
A 64-year-old girl and a 31-year-old man have been asleep in the home on the time. They have been each unhurt.
Emergency crews have been known as to the property on Chisholm Street simply earlier than 6am Sunday.
Fire & Rescue NSW rapidly extinguished the blaze and police established a criminal offense scene.
Officers arrested the 2 boys just some hours later earlier than they have been taken to Goulburn Police Station.
“The teens were interviewed and will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act,” NSW Police mentioned in an announcement.
The home sustained minor harm.
