A 15-year-old Gamber boy was arrested Monday in the setting of three brush fires in a Gamber subdivision.

State fire marshals charged the boy with arson threat, malicious burning in the second degree, and maliciously and negligently setting fires. He was released to his father Monday and will be tried as a juvenile.

Deputy State Fire Marshal Ted Meminger said that marshals are investigating the incident, in which pine brush and a mailbox were set on fire in the Deer Park Estates subdivision early July 13.
