Teens charged in connection with fire at Fuquay-Varina park
Posted January 27, 2015
Wake County, N.C. — Police say they have charged two suspects in a fire that caused $45,000 in damage at a Fuquay-Varina park last month.
Shaw Michael Spencer, 16, of 203 E. Ransom St., Fuquay-Varina, and Austin Ray McCormack, 17, of 509 Aspen Grove Drive, Fuquay-Varina, were each arrested Jan. 23 on a felony charge of burning of a structure.
The charges stem from a Dec. 31 fire at South Park on South Main Street. Town officials say damage to a picnic shelter was so severe that it had to be demolished for health and safety reasons.
It is in the process of being rebuilt.
Both Spencer and McCormack are out of jail on $10,000 unsecured bonds.
