MILWAUKEE - Two 17-year-old boys are behind bars for allegedly starting a fire at the EL Rey grocery store.

Milwaukee Police caught the suspects thanks to surveillance video. The store's manager says he's happy the culprits were caught, but that's not what he's focused on.

"You know, to be quite honest, I don't really need to know," manager Nelson Lang says. "They responded very quickly and I'm glad they're working on it, but all of our effort and emotion and time is right here and working and getting the store back open."

The teenagers could be charged as adults as early as Monday.
