Fire department officials Monday said a South Longview day care fire was the result of juvenile mischief.
Last Monday, 29 children were evacuated from Garrett's TLC Learning Center in the 1600 block of Mobberly Avenue when a fire ignited in the day care's storage building.
Longview Fire Marshal Johnny Zackary said investigators believe the fire was started by "juveniles misusing an ignition source."
Zackary said investigators have interviewed a few juveniles in connection with the blaze.
He said about $3,000 worth of damage was caused in the fire.
