LODI, Calif — Police have cited two kids for arson after a fire caused hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage at Lodi's historic Zupo Field.
Just after 5 p.m. on September 22, firefighters fought against flames at the baseball field. The flames were so intense that firefighters at Station 1 could see it a mile away.
The bleachers and the press box were completely destroyed.
At the time, the fire department said they could not determine a cause of the fire. Many people thought it could have been started by a homeless person.
A month later, Lodi police announced they found the two people responsible. The suspects are two children. Due to their age, the suspects' identities will not be released, though police have described them as being "12 years old or younger."
The suspects were identified through surveillance video and public assistance.
The children were questioned and cited with arson.
