TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Two juveniles have been detained in connection with an arson investigation from August.

Just before 7 p.m. on Aug. 12 a fire was reported at the Dollar Tree located in the strip mall at 25th and Wabash Avenue.

Officials report there were between 10 and 15 people inside the store at the time, but everyone made it out safely.

This fire caused extensive damage to not only the Dollar Tree store, but also to the First Wok restaurant next door to it.

Terre Haute Arson Investigator, Norm Loudermilk, told News 10 that it is nice to have closure in this nearly four month long case.

The two juveniles were taken into custody on Thursday and taken to the juvenile detention center.
