Teenagers Charged In Connection With Fire At Former Jamestown Factory

JAMESTOWN – Two teenagers are facing charges in connection with the fire at a former Jamestown furniture factory.

Jamestown Police say the teens, both 14 and 15-years-old girls, were spotted on video from area businesses entering the former Jamestown Royal Factory at 308 Crescent Street Friday evening.

After allegedly setting the fire the two, police say, then fled east on the railroad tracks past several other surveillance cameras.

Both have since been interviewed by police and released to a parent.

Police say they will face charges of second-degree arson in Chautauqua County Family Court at a later date.
