COLCHESTER — A summer camp on Lake Champlain that was heavily damaged by fire is expected to be up and running this summer.
Police say the teenagers had been lighting matches, fireworks and road flares in the area on Sunday.
Authorities say the dry conditions and wind caused the fire to spread quickly to multiple buildings at Camp Brown Ledge causing several hundred thousand dollars in damage.
The camp’s co-director told the Burlington Free Press that the camp will be open in June.
The two teens, aged 14 and 15, came forward with their parents and told police about what they had been doing.
Police said after consulting with the Chittenden County state’s attorney’s office, the incident is being referred to the Colchester Reparative Board for further action.MORE IN Vermont NewsA paraplegic hunter has taken his first deer since his paralysis, almost eight years ago.
