FAIRLAWN (WSLS 10) - A group of teenagers broke into a vacant elementary school in Pulaski County and set a fire inside of it during the weekend, according to county leaders.

County leaders said four teenagers went to the old Riverlawn Elementary School on Saturday, which is not currently in use, and destroyed furniture and school supplies. They also kicked in several doors and started a small fire on the gymnasium floor.

Despite the damage, the county still has plans to use the facility for recreation, as well as a youth center.

The teenagers were arrested following Saturday's break-in.
