Teen set fire, caused $3 million in damage at NC Walmart

ELKIN, N.C. July 10 2017 The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is still investigating an arson at the Walmart store even though an arrest has been made.
SBI agents confirmed Friday that a 15-year-old was charged after he admitted that he intentionally set a fire at the Elkin Walmart Tuesday night.
Investigators say that the fire caused approximately $3 million in damage and the 15-year-old has been charged with burning personal property in a public building.
The Surry County Fire Marshal's office said the case is still under investigation by Elkin Police, Elkin Fire Dept. and SBI.

More serious charges could be filed against the teen especially since the store was open and occupied when he lit the fire.
