      Man, juvenile arrested in Johnston fire

      Two people are facing charges in a suspicious fire in Johnston.

      The fire broke out early Sunday morning in a vacant house at 87 Greenville Ave. It took about three hours to knock down the flames.{} No one was hurt.

      Police arrested Brian Rosa on Monday and charged him with first-degree arson, conspiracy and larceny. His alleged accomplice is a juvenile.

      Police are also implicating both Rosa and the juvenile in a fire at 1 Yale Ave. in Johnston last week.

      Rosa was arraigned in Kent County District Court. The juvenile will appear in Family Court on Tuesday.
