MILWAUKEE - One day after Milwaukee police posted surveillance video from a grocery store fire, an arrest has been made.

Arson charges are now pending against two teenagers, ages 16 and 17, who were picked up in the 61-hundred block of West Stack Street Friday night.

The fire Thursday night at the El Rey grocery store near 52nd and Oklahoma left more than $300-thousand in damages.

The video released by the police department showed two men loitering outside the store shortly before the fire started.
