The teens will be issued tickets for reckless kindling which equates to misuse of fire and trespassing. The summonses will be issued through Aurora Municipal Court. No one was hurt in the incident.

Investigators said surveillance photos helped them track down the teens. They are not being identified because they are juveniles.

Security footage shows at least three teenage males on school grounds at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 9. One is wearing a black hat with a black-and-white checkered shirt. Another is wearing a dark hoodie with the word “California.” A third is wearing a black T-shirt and a light-colored baseball hat.
