Three adults and one juvenile from the Lugoff-Elgin area have been arrested following an arson investigation into suspicious wildfires.
Law enforcement agents with the S.C. Forestry Commission made the arrests. The juvenile is a member of the Blaney fire station's Explorer youth program, a SCFC release said.
The adults arrested were identified by the SCFC as Charlene Arrington, 38, Mark Branham, 19, and Jacob Eddings, 18.
The release said the SCFC was asked by the Kershaw County Fire Service to investigate when firefighters became suspicious of the juvenile suspect's readiness level when the fires were reported.
The four suspects are charged with "willfully burning lands of another" under the S.C. Code of Laws.
