On 18 Aug 08 Deputy Sheriff K. Travaglio was dispatched to the scene of a camper fire at 15747 Waterford Road, Waterford. The blaze, extinguished by The Beverly Fire Department, burnt the camper beyond recognition and damaged electrical wires and a shed nearby. Further investigation revealed two juveniles ran from the camper just prior to the fire. One of the juveniles admitted being inside the camper when he suddenly saw his friend, an eleven year old Middleport resident, light a piece of paper. The juvenile threw the flaming paper onto a stack of newspapers and the two fled as black smoke began to rise from the camper. Interviewed in the presence of his father, the eleven year old admitted starting the fire and directed Deputy Travaglio to the location of the lighter he used. As a result of her investigation, Deputy Travaglio requested a summons for the eleven year old to appear in Juvenile Court on a charge of delinquency by committing arson.
