The Gloversville Police Department has arrested three teens and charged them with arson. This is in connection with a fire that burned down the former JBF Mill.
All three of the teens have been charged with fourth-degree arson. This is a class E felony. They have also been charged with first-degree reckless endangerment which is a class D felony.
The teens charged were Allen H. Vosburgh Jr., 17, Joseph S. Banovic, JR., 17, , and David C. Taylor, 19.
Police have alleged that the three of them intentionally started a fire on February 10 and that their actions caused the destruction of the former mill. The police have also said that even though they allege they started the fire intentionally, police do not necessarily think the teens meant to burn down the building.
The police have said that the investigation into the fire included many interviews as well as reviewing surveillance footage.
If you’ve been seriously injured in a fire that was started by someone else who was acting negligently or criminally, you could seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim.
