Officials locate youths sought in El Dorado Hills wildland fire

Thanks to the public's cooperation, juveniles responsible for a wildland fire Sunday in El Dorado Hills have been identified, authorities say.

Investigators with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's Amador-El Dorado Unit, in conjunction with the El Dorado County District Attorney's Office, were able to identify the two youths, according to a Cal Fire news release. Investigators will work with the El Dorado County Probation Department, the youths and their families to complete the Juvenile Fire Setter Assessment Program, officials said.

The youths were not named because of their age.

Cal Fire also will seek reimbursement for the firefighting costs.

The fire, which occurred about 4 p.m. Sunday, burned approximately 5 acres of wildland in the area of Borders Drive and Trieste Way, threatening homes in the area.
