CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A teenager has been charged with causing a fire that has left a Charleston-area family homeless.
Investigators say 18-year-old Raheim Bradley was arrested Thursday and charged with third-degree arson. Authorities say a neighbor saw the teen tossing a burning device into a home on Wednesday.
The woman told deputies she saw something flash inside the house, and smoke start pouring out.
A family of four lived in the home, but no one was there when the fire started and eventually gutted the home. It wasn't known if Bradley had an attorney, and investigators haven't discussed a possible motive.
