Two teens arrested for arson at Flushing building

Hours after a second-alarm fire tore through a two-story commercial building in Flushing July 26, fire marshals and police placed two teenagers seared by the blaze under arrest at New York Medical Hospital Center Queens and charged them with igniting the inferno that sent them to the hospital, officials said.

The teenagers, Chen Lu, 17, of 105-20 66th Rd. in Forest Hills and a 15-year-old who was not identified because of his age were arrested at NYHQ and charged with arson, said Detective Madelyn Galindo, a Police Department spokeswoman.

The two teens were later transferred to the burn unit at New York Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan, police said.
