A teenager is suspected to be behind a fire that gutted an apartment building in Pawtucket yesterday.

Police say a thirteen year old boy playing with a lighter lit leaves on fire.

The fire then spread to the apartment on Day Street. The right side of the building was destroyed and the residents left homeless.

The teen has been referred to the family court.
