WOODBRIDGE, Va. – A 17-year-old male is charged with attempted murder tonight after a fire broke out in Woodbridge.

Here’s the latest from Prince William Fire and Rescue Department:

On Sunday, July 27th at approximately 4:30 a.m., fire and rescue units responded to a reported structure fire located at 13700 block of Marbury Lane in Woodbridge.

Upon arrival, fire and rescue units found a working fire on the first floor of the home. Firefighters entered the home and quickly extinguish the fire. Firefighters checked for extension; no further extension was found.

The occupants, 4 adults, safely evacuated the home without injury and were assisted by the Red Cross.

A juvenile sustained minor injuries; treated and released.

The Prince William County Fire Marshal’s Office quickly determined that the incident was an arson-related fire. In a joint investigation by the Fire Marshal’s Office and detectives from Prince William County Police Violent Crimes Bureau a suspect was developed and identified.

A 17 year old male juvenile of Woodbridge was arrested without incident and charged with 4 counts of attempted murder, 1 count of arson of an occupied dwelling and 1 count of manufacturing an explosive device/materials or fire bomb.

He is being held at the Juvenile Detention Center.
