Probably the worst place to do a crime spree within a short period of time is Burbank. There are police everywhere and they are total squares, which makes for police who don't fuck around. Add in dumb teenager arsonists suspected of setting a fire at Michael's Bar and Grill in Burbank and four or five other small fires within a 15-minute time span early this morning.

A perimeter was set up by Burbank police and a short time later two 17-year-old boys from Burbank were found hiding in the backyard of a home, Berry said. The boys were arrested on suspicion of arson to an inhabited dwelling, he said. An investigation was under way to determine if the two set the fires, he said. [ABC7]

It was reported that all the fires were easily knocked down and no one was hurt.
