A 15-year-old Glen Burnie boy was charged with intentionally setting a fire in a bathroom trash can at Glen Burnie High School on Tuesday, according to Anne Arundel County Police.

Police responded to the school in the 7500 block of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard about 9:35 a.m. after school officials found and extinguished a small fire in a men's bathroom at the school, police said.

An investigation of the fire by arson investigators determined it was intentionally set, and resulted in the boy's being named a suspect and arrested, police said.

The boy, who was not identified, has been charged as a juvenile with first-degree arson, second-degree malicious burning and reckless endangerment, police said.

He was released to the custody of a grandparent, police said.
