Three young boys were busted after vandalizing and starting a fire in a classroom at Farmdale Elementary School in Merced.
One of the boys is only 10-years-old and the other two are both 14.
Fire crews responded to the school before 2:00 a.m. Tuesday morning.
They say the inside of a classroom was vandalized and an arson fire was set but it was extinguished by the fire sprinkler system before it could spread.
The boys were later identified on surveillance footage and picked up Tuesday afternoon.
The 10-year-old was released to his parents but the older boys were booked into juvenile hall.
